Re: /setup.html please read - feedback desired
Just to clarify:
The original suggestion was to install the sourceforge *software* on a
Red Hat/Cygnus server. This was deemed overkill.
Earnie's suggestion was to open a cygapp project on the VALinux/Sourceforge
server, and use that. cgf has rejected *that* as well -- for unstated
reasons (although you can guess: reluctance to rely on non-RH servers
and/or competitors (VA Linux?). Resistance to decentralization. *SLOW*
download speeds from sourceforge machines. etc.)
