Ok, snapshots work thusly:

I have a symlink in my home dir called setup-snapshots, which is a link
to the actual dir for

To make a snapshot, I use:

make snapshot cygwinsite=rbcollins at cygwin dot com


So, for you to get snapshot access, ask Chris for
a) scp upload access
b) write access to the setup-snapshots directory.
c) said symlink in your home dir.
(If you have ssh shell access, you have a, and can make c yourself.

I'm happy for you to have setup-snapshot upload access.
