Re: [ANNOUNCEMENT] [1.7] Updated: cygwin-1.7.0-66

I understand completely now that I know the mirrors operate in "pull" mode.

I just downloaded cygwin 1.7 and received version -65 instead from (http).  What is wrong?

Did I catch the download in the middle of a critical update?

Huh? No. Mirrors use a pull mechanism, not a push mechanism. If the mirror doesn't have the latest version of cygwin that means it hasn't pulled it from yet.

Chris, you just beat me to this. :-) The only thing I'd add is you need to
either be more patient (<>)
or more vigilant/exhaustive in your search. In the vigilant/exhaustive
category, you would have found what you were looking for with this mirror
<>. Of course, I'm not saying this mirror will
always be the most up-to-date. That's where the "exhaustive" part comes
in. ;-)
