Rob supplied the descriptions, I'm sure cygwin will operate without
profile, but would just "Core common files" be sufficient?

Debian's description (slightly altered) is:

sdesc: "Base system miscellaneous files"
ldesc: "This package contains the basic filesystem hierarchy, and
 several important miscellaneous files"

Would this be better?

ack :)

requires: cygwin

Do you think it needs any shells?

the Deb package consists of: (relevant to Cygwin)


with a seperate base-passwd which "provides the
master /etc/passwd and /etc/group files, containing
allocated user and group IDs, plus the update-passwd
utility to keep them up to date."

Note that I'm willing to do this package too :)
