32-bit/64-bit sharing of Local Package Directories
Mon Nov 17 14:39:00 GMT 2014
I currently maintain separate 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Cygwin.
I have separate "Local Package Directory"s for them, but that seems
unnecessary since almost everything is maintained separately: The
setup binaries have different names and the mirror folders contain
different subfolder names (x86 or x86_64). The exceptions are the
setup log files.
It would be nice if the setup.log and setup.log.full files would
also be named (or placed in different folders) to distinguish
between 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Then we could have the two
versions of Cygwin share the same Local Package Directory without
Indeed, this is a low-priority item, so not worth arguing about.
