Arguments like this is the reason I had to spend years searching through
COBOL code for 2 digit years. Old habits seem hard to die. Either
upgrade or forever pay the penalty yourself to keep the old code running.
Actually I agree wholeheartedly, which is why I I'll make my own
frozen mirror, and deal with whatever happens after that myself.
Since these environments are frozen and isolated, I have not had any
problems. This is also something I only do for my own personal
environments; I won't consider it for public production.
I believe Corinna mentioned (and I will re-interate here) that the
"Cygwin Time Machine" is at your service. It contains every(*) snapshot
(circa) release of Cygwin, should you happen to need something from the
past. I don't tend to advertise this much, but it is publicly available. :)
(*) well, as far back as v1.3.12-4 (2002/08/13/043102)
