good for the announcement and the cygwin.readme for Emacs to notify
they will need to install the (exhuberant) ctags package if they want
tag files for Emacs Lisp. This is a standard, documented feature of
users should be made aware of why it will not work if they only
install the base
Cygwin installation plus Emacs.
Correction about the Cygwin README for Emacs: I see that
/usr/share/doc/Cygwin/emacs-22.1.README already mentions the exuberant
"Some binaries normally part of the emacs distribution are separated
to avoid conflicts with other packages. If you need b2m or rcs-ckeckin
install xemacs-emacs-common package. If you need ctags or etags
Of course, the 'b2m' and 'rcs-checkin' binaries are already installed by
default because the 'xemacs-emacs-common' package is a requirement
of the Cygwin Emacs package.
Alternatively, the 'etags' program could be removed from the ctags
(which still provides etags via the '-e' command-line option) and
the Emacs package.
