Version 4.0-6 of base-files has been uploaded.

Base-files is a set of system configuration and setup files.

Change Log
    * Environment variable SHELL is now exported from /etc/profile.
      Improved profile_d() function in /etc/profile - Cyrille Lefevre
    * TMP and TEMP as defined in the Windows environment must be kept
      for windows apps, even if started from cygwin - Atry
    * Added two files under /etc/profile.d/ that use tzset, which
      uses the geographical location setting of the user to find the right
      mapping, rather than the locale setting. Only on Windows 2000 which
      doesn't know about the user's geographical location, or if fetching
      the geographical location fails, it falls back to the user's locale.
      Corrected error in var setting - Corinna Vinschen
      See cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-developers/2012-01/msg00042.html,
      Updated manifest.
    * Added CC0 license header to scripts, and the CC0 license
      itself which is under /usr/share/doc/common-licenses/.
      Modified locale setting in /etc/profile.d/lang.{sh,csh} to
      honor the OS setting.
      Corrected some files' header info.
      Added Greg's Wiki's URL in /etc/profile.
      Bumped version number.
