- Subject: announcements trapped by anti-viral filter
Our corporate anti-viral filters traps cygwin-announce now. Someone has
decided that (imagine the punctuation) "setup dot exe" is a potential virus
vector and all list-mailed messages containing it as a character string are
automatically blocked. Hence, I can no longer receive cygwin-announce.
Our filters can't be the only ones blocking you guys (and other good folks'
news) from reaching us. Would someone at your site be
interested/able/willing to change the standard announcement text to avoid
mentioning that executable?
Otherwise, would someone please work with me on developing a
source-patch-only daily tarball that could be fetched by a cygwin-shell
