I've been keeping up with the new make, bash, etc, on my own desktop,
but I'd like to try updating our build machine's packages to see if we
can get some speed out of the new bash release. However, this being a
build machine, breaking it would be *bad*.
I *want* to say I can downgrade (not uninstall and reinstall, downgrade)
to the exact configuration we had by backing up the local install
directory and - if needed - re-installing from there, but can someone
confirm that this will (or at least "should") work?
Well you should at the very least be able to restore the original state
by removing your Cygwin installation and installing from the local
download directory, assuming it hasn't been changed in any way and
that the packages there represented the totality of what you have
installed currently. If in doubt, install it on a clean machine and
poke around with the result.
