According to JonY on 11/21/2009 9:12 PM:

But one really should be -1 and the other -2 for just this reason.

Ok, should I release a -2 at the same time for both 1.5 and 1.7, or a -2 just for 1.5 should do?

Release a single -2 for just one of the two versions (your choice of whether it is for 1.5 or for 1.7); but do NOT do a -2 for both 1.5 and 1.7, or we are right back to the complaint. In future builds, if you want to continue supporting both 1.5 and 1.7, be sure that the numbering for 1.5 is different than the numbering for 1.7. That way, when someone asks about -1, you can unambiguously determine for which version of cygwin they are asking about.


Good point, I haven't thought of that. I've sent -2 for 1.7 to cygwin-apps.

Perhaps somebody should add a hint to packaging guide at <> about maintaining packages for 2 or more versions of Cygwin.
