- Subject: setup and file-conflicts
the cygwin-setup currently overwrites files in /etc without a warning.
it happened to me while updating the squid-package.
there should be a warning or the new file is given a new name like
/etc/.cygwin.squid.conf if the file squid.conf already exists.
another strange thing happened, when i was installing 2 packages that
both contained the same file. after uninstalling, the file was gone and
i had to reinstall the other package.
this could/should perhaps be avoided by using some hashes.
