Hi Mercury and Jerome,

I typically do modify the times to reflect the version number. Of
course that's not necessary by any means, but it's a habit I started
doing as a quick and easy contingency to help me in the event of files
becoming crossed, e.g. if I were to accidentally drop files into the
wrong version folder or some such errantry.

Is the preferred behavior to not touch the times? If so, I can
certainly refrain from doing so in future packages. :)

Please preserve the timestamps of the original ZIP content.

Good to know that Jerome has a tool for that, bad enough
that GIT defaults to break timestamps without that tool?
When handling files outside GIT, timestamps stay as-is.

As you already add the LSM file, the handling date is
preserved as timestamp of the LSM in the ZIP. You can
even use ZIP -o to make the timestamp of the ZIP itself
match the timestamp of the newest file inside the ZIP.

In addition, I would still love the "release-cli" of
our GITLAB repository to create actual release notes.

At the moment, I only see WHICH packages got updated
when, but need manual "research" to find out WHY.

Regards, Eric

PS: I think DJGPP should stay available as separate download.
Most OTHER compilers are small enough to stay on the main CD.
