Re: Native symlinks and setup.exe
in my opinion, it is not a setup.exe or tar problem, but I think
packages should not include symlinks at all. All can be created
postinstallation by the postinstall script, inside Cygwin and the
users environment it is running on.
Obviously, a political discussion is required, to decide whether it is
ok, as is, or if a change in package logic would have benefits.
