Description

boxbackup-chris_general_1569-backup-client-mingw32.zip contains

install-backup-client
installer.iss 

(as well as the bad ReadMe.txt file submitted in another ticket).

Should we remove them?

Should this one be removed, too?

bbackupd-config

Replying to petej: boxbackup-chris_general_1569-backup-client-mingw32.zip doesn't contain

pcreposix.dll

Should it?

(In [1840]) Don't include the install-backup-client script in Windows builds, as it's pretty useless without Cygwin, and of marginal use with it (refs #24).

install-backup-client is useless, removed in [1840], thanks!

bbackupd-config is of marginal utility, as there is no other way to generate certificates on Windows than using this script under Cygwin. The default configuration file has been improved in [1829]. I say we keep this script until we have something better for Windows.

installer.iss is of marginal utility, as it may help anyone who wants to build an ISS installer for Box Backup.

pcreposix.dll should no longer be required as of [1007] [1008].
