Re: singular-icons: possible packaging error?

Hello Barry,

thanks for the email. This packaging "error" dates back to my predecessor who put the file there on purpose, to allow for the creation of a Windows start menu entry "cygwin setup" (with the setup.exe behind it). It also has to do with another distribution that we used to offer to SINGULAR users.

Anyway, I will remove the file from the package. There is going to be a new minor release of SINGULAR anyway, so that I will send new binaries for upload soon.

Thanks again and
best regards,

Subject: singular-icons: possible packaging error?
To: "" <>

The singular-icons package contains the following file in both versions 3.0.3-1 and 3.1.0-1. /usr/lib/Singular/cygwin-setup.exe

I point this out since it seems strange to me and I wonder whether it
might be a mistake.

I apologized for wasting bandwidth if it is not an error.
