Okay, it's up there.
But it isn't a FULL example. You didn't modify the
CYGWIN-PATCHES/mktemp.README file to reflect *your* building style. You
didn't change CYGWIN-PATCHES/mktemp-1.3.1-1.sh to reflect the way *you*
think the build procedure should work. Both files still refer to things
like /usr/doc/cygwin/SOURCES and /usr/doc/cygwin/BUILD etc.
You merely changed the name of the internal tarball slightly.
I want to see a REAL, FULL example of your idea, as integrated with
setup's *current* capabilities. I *thought* that my -style2 did that.
You left my -style2 shell script as is, but changed just enough in the
package structure so that the script doesn't work. You changed a little
of the README but it still isn't a completely accurate representation of
Also, if the -src tarball is going to contain mktemp-1.3.1-1.patch, then
the src tarball should be named mktemp-1.3.1-1-src.tar.bz2, NOT
mktemp-1.3.1-src.tar.bz2. Otherwise, how will you differentiate it from
the -src tarball that contains mktemp-1.3.1-2.patch?
