Re: [ITA] w32api-3.0b_svn5368-1 [GOLDSTAR request for Chris Sutcliffe inside]

Hi Jon,

many thanks for taking over this package.

And again, this time publically, I would like to thank Chris Sutcliffe
for maintaining the w32api package for the last 9 years.  Can we get
a GOLD STAR for Chris, please?

Preliminary?  Do you want this to be uploaded as is, or do you want
to provide it as "test" package only for now?  Or not at all?

The package looks good to me, and I built Cygwin successfully using
these headers and libs.

Does anybody using Windows headers would like to give this new set of
w32api headers a try?  Mintty or the X server seem to be pretty good
acid tests...
