L.S.,

Just a question, meaning it may have been discussed in cygwin-apps,
but I have been reading that list for quite a while now.

I should have added:

... next I decided to install the previous versions of both cscope and
liblz4_1.

However to my surprise /etc/setup/installed.db now lists:

64-@@ grep -e cscope -e lz4 /drv/e/Cygwin64-test/etc/setup/installed.db
cscope cscope-15.8a-2.tar.bz2 1 <==== artifical version number
liblz4_1 liblz4_1-1.7.5-0.tar.bz2 0 <==== ditto

These files do NOT exist. The file names were "artificially crafted".

The files that do exist, are:

64-@@ ls -l release/cscope release/lz4/liblz4_1
release/cscope:
total 700
-rw-r--r-- 1 Henri None 381409 Mar  6 13:18 cscope-15.8.0.1-2.tar.bz2
-rw-r--r-- 1 Henri None 330264 Mar  6 13:16 cscope-15.8b-1.tar.xz

release/lz4/liblz4_1:
total 52
-rw-r--r-- 1 Henri None 30408 Mar  6 12:37 liblz4_1-1.7.5-1.tar.xz
-rw-r--r-- 1 Henri None 17924 Mar  6 11:15 liblz4_1-131-1.tar.xz

Is this the future of setup? Meaning, is it the intention that it may
be possible that installed.db refers to files that do not exist?
