comment Add “Open MSYS terminal here” in the Windows right click context menu?
If you use MSYS2 you get those utilities and you won't need to pull in Cygwin.

comment Add “Open MSYS terminal here” in the Windows right click context menu?
Of course writing the comment above prompted me to look into things a bit and I found a comment in /etc/profile that shows how to get a login shell in a specific location. I've added that as a comment to the github gist I linked to above.

These are the settings I ended up with: gist.github.com/magthe/a60293fe395af7245a9e. There is one issue I haven't solved: the started shell is not a login shell, so /etc/profile isn't loaded and with it quite a bit of configuration is missing. If I add a -l to the bash invocation it becomes a login shell, but I always end up in $HOME. I am loathe to make changes to files in /etc so any suggestions not requiring that would be most welcome.

Doing it manually turned out to be the easiest option.

comment Variables in GNU Make recipes, is that possible?
Nope, as you see I need it as part of the recipe since the value will be different for different files.

comment Using systemd to start gpg-agent?
Yes, that much is clear from reading the man page, but isn't there some way of getting gpg-agent started so that its environment variables makes it into the login session?

comment How to find tar format of archive?
I'm on Linux and I have the CLI version of 7z installed, but it offers no way to extract that information AFAICS.

comment How to find tar format of archive?
That's good to know, but for home I'd really like a way that doesn't require me to first go out buying a license for an OS I don't particularly like :)

comment How to find tar format of archive?
Running tar --help I find out that it defaults to "--format=gnu". The generated file is not accepted on hackage.haskell.org with the message that it isn't in ustar format.

comment Windows license for instance run both on HW and in VM?
Ah, that's what I feared, I have to upgrade myself to a multi-million-dollar company first, then I can use my computer the way I'd like. Well, well, I already knew that licenses tend to suck. Thanks for helping me find this out.
