Your commit message reads to me as if you're staying with version 1.2.6 and simply get it from another mirror, while you're in fact using version 1.2.7 instead. I'd expect the commit message to be more clear on this, and also to include a statement whether everything still compiles / runs fine with zlib 1.2.7.

Good catch, thanks! Will clear up the commit message locally (this time).

You are welcome,

Well it finally built! My 2c advise.. I got lost with all the branches, but checking out "devel" might not be such a great idea. The issue I fixed yesterday and this one were blocking issues - the full pkg or the net pkg were broken.

2 solutions:

  1. the install can checkout a more stable branch. Like the one that was used to build the latest stable (I believe master)
  2. automate testing of the builds

bottom line, an install should get the developer in a stable state to begin.

only SAP provides installers that do not work !

I think you just started with msysgit at a bad time somehow. For me in the past the devel branch always worked quite good and is supposed to. The main reason: We have a lack of resources in msysgit. I always wanted to setup solution 2 but I do not really have a spare (virtual) machine to do so. Despite the fact that so many people are using Git for Windows these days no big company (which probably would have some spare resources) has stepped up to provide such resources. For example even Microsoft is using Git in Codeplex but I have not heard from anyone from there providing something.
