[ANNOUNCEMENT] Test: pdksh-5.2.14-3

I've updated pdksh to version 5.2.14-3.  This is a maintainership change
release, so it's marked "test".  Please install and test it.  If no
problems crop up, we'll make it "curr" in a week or so.  See below for a
list of changes.

NOTE: this version requires Cygwin 1.5.*, and *will not* work with earlier
versions of Cygwin.  If you still use Cygwin 1.3.22 (although why you'd
want to is beyond me), install pdksh-5.2.14-2.

PD-ksh is a clone of the AT&T Korn shell. At the moment, it has most of
the ksh88 features, not much of the ksh93 features, and a number of it's
own features.

Changes since 5.2.14-2:

- Maintainer switch (previous ports maintained by Elfyn McBratney)
- Minimized the amount of struct option changes.
- Switched to the new FHS
- Fixed up the postinstall script
- Switched to build method 2 and fixed the source package to fully
  recreate the distribution
  - in particular, changed the default binary name to "pdksh"
- Changed configure and autoconf files to detect Cygwin
- Updated the README

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your system.
Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Shells" and
then click on the appropriate field until the above announced version
number appears if it is not displayed already.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin mailing
list at:  cygwin at cygwin dot com .  I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
