           Summary: remaining enhancements to the nsis-based installer
           Product: Ghostscript
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P4
         Component: Build Process

Just to make sure that this work does not fall through the cracks. The last
update while useable, could do with some additional changes - 

Two patches, one updates the nsis script itself, the other updates how the main
makefile passes information to it:

http://www.ghostscript.com/~hintak/patchset/gs-patches/0018-Passing-zip-name-and-gs-version-to-nsis-to-name-the-.patch
http://www.ghostscript.com/~hintak/patchset/gs-patches/0019-Many-enhancements-to-the-nsis-script.patch

The main changes are:
---------------------
Passing zipfile name and gs version to nsis to name the output file
 and also some internal information of the installer, rather than requiring
some separate manual editing of the file name and gs version.

The script itself has been updated with the usual artifex copyright boiler
plate, some 64-bit related changes and auto-detection from the "zip name"
passed in from the main makefile, some comments documenting notable differences
with the winzipse-base installer, safer uninstall, and some general
re-indentation for readability.
