Hi Bram Moolenaar, you wrote:

I tried to use the command given on the site to update Windows 
runtime files:

rsync -avzcP --delete .

It seems to work fine, but the result directory doesn't have spell directory at 
all. Is it bug or feature?

As Bram said earlier, the runtime/dos directory on the ftp site doesn't contain any spell files. With --delete, it will delete in the target directory tree whatever it doesn't find in the source tree.

If you download the full sources (unix+lang+extra) to some directory (let's say %HOME%\build\vim) creating there a tree starting at vim70, you can then maintain the runtime files (including the spell files) as follows (in Cygwin bash) (untested):

  cd $HOME/build/vim/vim70
  rsync -avzcP --delete --exclude="\dos\" ./runtime
  cd src
  export CONF_ARGS='--with-global-runtime=/cygdrive/c/PROGRA~1/vim'
  make config
  make installruntime

You will get runtime files with Unix ends-of-lines, but Vim-for-Windows can cope with that (provided that 'fileformats' includes "unix", which is the default), and so does WordPad. Notepad can't swallow them but I guess you can live with that.
