-cygrunsrv is required only to use it as a rsync:// server (in --daemon mode)
-zlib is not used (rsync currently uses a modified version that's in its
-ssh is required for acces via ssh, of course.. but not for rsync:// servers
-bash is only required for commodity, but of course works perfectly in CMD.EXE
if path is correct

Uhm... it seems that actually it requires... nothing.
I have still to put up a "clean system" with only the rsync package installed
though (and the obvious cygwin package, but I bet that one needs not to be
specified in "requires"... it's required by every package...) but "Dependency
Walker" shows only cygwin1, kernel32 and ntdll; as does KillProcess tool to
see which DLL are used "in memory"..

Can you explain me if you intend to have also a "reccomended" and "often
required" packages in the "required" part?

Thanks, Lapo
