coreutils-5.93-3 now provides /etc/defaults/etc/DIR_COLORS. I will leave
it in test until your version of base-files is ready for upload. Be sure
that when you send the announcement to cygwin-announce that you remind
users of the potential of completely losing the file if they upgrade
coreutils before base-files; a cygcheck -c will show if either package is
incomplete and needs to be reinstalled.
An unrelated comment: Due to reinstating su.exe, coreutils now depends on
crypt. To date, no package in Base has had a dependency on crypt, so the
new coreutils does increase the size of the minimal cygwin install. Speak
up now if anyone has heartburn with this.
Life is short - so eat dessert first!
