According to Yaakov (Cygwin Ports) on 8/15/2008 1:43 AM:
As for license files, do we really need to install hundreds of copies of
the same license? IANAL, so does a symlink to the copy in base-files
suffice, or is the mere presence of the latter enough?
I would prefer the symlink. It's still nice to be able to read a
per-package license by following the symlink.
3) where to install docs
Could we remove the versioning from the docdir and Cygwin README, IOW:
docdir without version ++
But for the README I'd prefer the version.
Dummy users might have troubles finding out the installed version.
Hardly anyone knows about /etc/setup/installed.db
I would also like a generated .lst MANIFEST file for the binary packages
in the public setup dir.
