Re: GNU make 3.81rc2 available and I'm worried

Ok, fair enough. Sorry if I came of demanding (it wasn't my intention).

cgf, as the maintainer of the current Cygwin make release (version 3.80-1), could you assist me please?

The problem as I see it is that GNU make was ported in these earlier releases, but 1) the source was not modified with atomic patches, 2) the patches never made it upstream (not saying there wasn't an attempt. I don't know).

Am I right on point 1? If not, is there a patch set that I can look at to make the porting easier?

At this point, you might be asking why I don't merge the 3.80 to 3.81 patch back into the cygwin source. It is because of point 2. I would like to "give a stab" at trying to get any porting patches accepted upstream. Am I breaking new ground here, or has it been tried and failed previously?
