Re: ping Unison users: abandon versions 2.9.1-2.12.0 ?

I'm the Cygwin maintainer for Unison.

My Debian host has

$ apt-cache policy unison
  Installed: 2.13.16-6
  Candidate: 2.13.16-6
  Version table:
 *** 2.13.16-6 0
        990 testing/main Packages
        300 unstable/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     2.13.16-5 0
        200 stable/main Packages

So I'm guessing that your development server is still using a locally
installed copy from a long while back, and the sysadmins haven't updated.
Or, they may have a newer version such as 2.13 installed too, and you only
need to change which version your client talks to, e.g.

unison -servercmd /usr/bin/unison-2.13.16

or some such.

which -a unison
ls /usr/{,local/}bin/unison*

might provide some useful information here.

No need to rename any current versions, since they're already named by their
version numbers:

$ cd /usr/bin
$ ls -o unison*
