Dear MSYS developers users,
 
I use MSYS everyday as a shell for using my Windows box,
I also have developed a set of makefiles that allow me to use the Visual Studio compilers from standrad unix makefile system.
 
I have come to update MSYS and can nolonger find my way around the install process, ( alright i am dumb etc ...).
I tried the automatic installer ( even though i did not want MINGW and wanted more than a the base MSYS system),
however the installer did not work probably becuase i am using it from behind a firewall and would normally need to supply a http-proxy to other tools like wget.
 
So resorting to a manual install and totally daunted by the numbers of versions and, i.e. i would like msys1.0.16 with openssl which seems to only be made for msys1.0.13, other packages dont have any reliance of the msys release.
 
Can someone indicate a way forward for me please ??
