Msys2 probably doesn't have a collective license since it's more like a combination of programs and projects and patches

@Biswa96 about evince, need to compare files in your package and in CI
Biswapriyo Nath
@Biswa96
How? I have diff pacman -Fl and pacman -Ql. Then compare ntldd outputs. No change.
Алексей
@Alexpux
what if open both packages in archive tool and see what files bigger
give me your package
Алексей
@Alexpux
@Biswa96 I check my local build
it also bigger
difference are in help files
CI create symlinks in package
my local build create copies
Biswapriyo Nath
@Biswa96

@jeremyd2019 yeah, somehow one of the dependencies (icu) is not getting pulled, I'll have a look later

@dscho

any thoughts on adding a mingw git by syncing in https://github.com/git-for-windows/MINGW-packages/tree/main/mingw-w64-git

yes @dscho ^

Git for Windows overrides the MSYS2 runtime because it needs a couple tweaks to pass Git's test suite. It's therefore not enough to just sync mingw-w64-git. I never managed to convince Alexey to work together on resolving those issues and gave up a couple years ago. Maybe I should restart that effort, but my pandemic-related time constraints make that a rather daunting idea right now.

Besides, Git for Windows' mingw-w64-git also adds the git-bash.exe and git-cmd.exe at the root directory, and /bin/bash.exe and /cmd/git.exe as convenience redirectors, which is probably not something MSYS2 would want to have. We'd need to figure out how to disentangle that (maybe as an extra package that has only those Git for Windows-specific global files) before we could move further on that.
David Macek
@elieux
Would you be okay with mingw-w64-git in MSYS2 not passing those tests?
Johannes Schindelin
@dscho
No.
A Git installation that fails the test suite is not a Git installation.
David Macek
@elieux
Does msys/git pass the suite?
Алексей
@Alexpux
are git-bash.exe is mingw program?
Johannes Schindelin
@dscho
I don't know, I'm not really interested in taking on responsibility for msys/git.

are git-bash.exe is mingw program?

Yes. They are in the root directory because otherwise users would not discover them in, say, a Portable Git.

David Macek
@elieux
My previous question wasn't meant to assume you would take responsibility over MSYS2's mingw-w64-git.
Does that make a difference?
Алексей
@Alexpux
well then we can create separate package for them using mingw-cross compiler
to not involve mingw subsystems
create msys package i mean
David Macek
@elieux
It doesn't make much sense even then. Git for Windows always is only mingw32 or only mingw64, so there can be one git-bash.exe outside. We can have both at the same time.
Алексей
@Alexpux
@elieux we must not install binaries from mingw package to msys root
David Macek
@elieux
I agree.
I'm just saying using mingw-w64-cross won't solve everything.
Алексей
@Alexpux
@elieux im just about providing git-bash.exe and git-cmd.exe
David Macek
@elieux
I know.
Should git-bash then open MINGW32, or MINGW64?
Алексей
@Alexpux
for what reason they created at all @dscho ?
David Macek
@elieux
They are in the root directory because otherwise users would not discover them in, say, a Portable Git.
It opens MinTTY with Bash with mingw-w64-git.
(Or conhost with cmd, in case of git-cmd.)
Алексей
@Alexpux
ok
Christoph Reiter
@lazka
@dscho thanks for the info
Johannes Schindelin
@dscho

for what reason they created at all @dscho ?

As I mentioned before: so that users discover them easier.

@Biswa96
Are we allowed to copy ideas from Fedora?
Алексей
@Alexpux
what you mean
Biswapriyo Nath
@Biswa96
I mean like build command, flags, patches etc.
Алексей
@Alexpux
why not

@mingwandroid

@mingwandroid, WRT :point_up: January 10, 2021 11:27 PM no worries, I'm not in a rush to have it done, just slightly annoyed/frustrated because finding the workaround is being harder than packaging several other tools. Hope they let you out soon! (despite not having much outside to go to :S)

Thanks @umarcor , I am back now. I must say that the Spanish health service took good care of me, despite my sorely lacking Spanish language skills. I will not say too much about the food, because as my dear Mum often says "if you can't say something nice it's best to say nothing at all" ;-)

@umarcor
@mingwandroid I'm at the north of spain, so kind of know what you mean :laughing: Glad they set you free!
Biswapriyo Nath
@Biswa96
Random thought. Is it possible to create a bot in github which will comment when a issue is fixed and the package is uploaded?

Hello guys, I'm new here. Firstly, I want to thank you all for the great software. It really ease my workflow on windows (which I have to use at work). Secondly, is there any CLI image viewer available? I couldn't find in pacman, but just in case I miss something. Is it really hard to implement or create image viewer package. If not I would really like to try contributing :)
