I have uploaded mintty 2.9.9 with the following changes:
While you're at it, could you please stop using the release number "0" for your packages?
I had previously explained why I used to like this (native package, no
patches) and there had been no comments...
That's supposed to be used for test packages only
(if you want to make an effort to convey that in the package file name).
I don't see this documented anywhere.
Proper releases should start with "1".

OK, I see *this* described now; I think it changed some time. Was there any
discussion about it?
Anyway, with maybe one more vote, I'll make the change.
While you're at it, a mintty-debuginfo package may be pretty helpful.
Sorry, I neither know how to make use of such a package nor how to generate it or what it contains.
But I'd take a patch:)
