Regarding cygwin time machine. I can't use it, since cygwin
is compiled for MSYS2. And then it is being run under Wine
So we have two people who have difficulty using time machine.
i did download setup.exe and the binary packages of the last
version with XP support using the "Download but don't Install"
feature of setup.exe . (But i never tested if it's usable).
I don't understand. What difficulty did you have? It sounds like you
successfully downloaded (I presume) the 32-bit packages from the Time
Machine? What was difficult about it? I really want to know.
If it's just *slow*, well, yes, that's a know problem. :-/
Also, did you pull the source packages? I recall that one of the
requirements is that you provide the source packages along with the binary
(I expect Corinna will correct me if I'm wrong about that).
Now i would like to provide them on an HTTP Server.
If you do, please let me know so I can add reference to it in the Time
i think setup.exe can use such a repository.
If it helps, I have been collecting versions of setup as well. I just
don't have an exposed list for that (yet).
Right now i'm not sure if i have to ask for permission to do
so given it is open source.
Am i allowed to do this?
I think you have to say "Pretty Please with Sugar on Top!" :-D
