This is the first ghostscript release from a new maintainer (James R.
Files for uploading are located at:
I have maintained the packaging approach of the previous maintainers, which is
basically "Method 1" per the cygwin.com website. The only significant change I
made was to move the source patch out of the CYGWIN-PATCHES subdirectory in the
source tree, and move it into the top-level directory, to avoid problems with
the patch referring to itself. At some point in the future it would be good to
move the ghostscript packaging to "Method 2".
I have used the unofficial version of upset at http://cygwinports.dotsrc.org to
set up ftp://antiskid.homelinux.net/pub/cygwin with the proper mirror structure
to allow installation and test of this new version using setup.exe. Some very
basic testing following local installation reveals no issues. I don't claim to
have tested this comprehensively, but it does seem to work properly, e.g., from
the command-line as well as with xfig and epstool.
In proper accordance with cygwin policy, the "setup.ini" and "setup.bz2"
files, along with the "release" subdirectory, will be removed from
when I am notified the upload to cygwin.com is completed. I have a release
announcement prepared which I will send to cygwin-announcements at that time.
