#17 Source and "binary" packages extract to same directory

I nearly extracted the sources into the same directory as the runnable version, just because the paths in each start with the same directory name! The only thing that saved me was that I forgot to delete the "My Documents" from the path to extract the source to, so it ended up in My Documents\Desktop\GetGnuWin32.

It would be better if you made the source package's directory be e.g. GetGnuWin32-0.6.3-src, or at least GetGnuWin32-0.6.3.

    Thank you for reporting this. I'll fix it in the next version. I consider this a low priority issue and as I have no intentions to release a new version soon you should extract to a separate directory.
