I am personally fine with it, because cygwin is used by developers not production systems and I expect my developers to upgrade their environment for security fixes, etc. If I ever had a situation where I am using git, in production, on cygwin, where I could not upgrade I would effort to make a compile test based patch to the make file to accommodate the issue. > > -- >8 -- > From: Mark Levedahl <mleved...@gmail.com> > Date: Sun, 6 Jan 2013 11:56:33 -0800 > Subject: [PATCH] Makefile: add comment on CYGWIN_V15_WIN32API > > There is no documented, reliable, and future-proof method to > determine the installed w32api version on Cygwin.
