Package 'git' is broken after update #259
I installed 'babun' today and tried to update 'git', as the included version is very old (1.7.x). Firstly, it did not update through 'pact' -> 'git already installed'. So I tried as suggested in the issues here to remove and reinstall,
After 'pact remove git' and 'pact install git', it installed fine (I updated the MD5 to SHA512 fix in pact). However, now 'git' is not a valid command in babun. 'git' returns nothing regardless of operands and other packages return that 'git' is not installed.
Moreover, there is no way of returning 'git' to the older version at all. The only option is complete reinstallation of 'babun' itself. This is very disappointing as I cannot rely on an old version of 'git' got my projects and I also cannot use the new version...
Is there going to be a new release that fixes this soon? Or at least if someone can build from updated source as I do not have a machine configured for building cygwin currently.
