Related: Should we have separate settings for 1.5 and 1.7 for several
variables? Conflicts I see not reflected in config.mak.uname on pu:
trustable filemode (1.7 has, 1.5 does not)
MMAP/Pread (1.7 pread is thread safe, 1.5 I dont think was, MMAP
utility is convolved in this)
regex - 1.7 is broken, per Ramsay 1.5 works
If you think its worth it, I'll create a patch series with the above
and justifications for the different settings that I know.
I'd say that would be a sensible thing to do, given that the
alternative seems to be "let's drop 1.5 support right now, because
otherwise we cannot run Git on 1.7".
dad577f Cygwin has trustable filemode
174bb98 Use compat/regex on Cygwin
After merging the following into current pu, all tests that run by
default pass on Cygwin 1.7, i.e.
prove -j 8 t[0-9]*.sh
reports "All tests successful."
I've *never* had this happen on Cygwin before.
