Before someone suggests adding a google link to the cygwin site, let me
reveal that I had the idea to do that last year but the collected wisdom
of the people who, with me, run sources.redhat.com was that we shouldn't
be using the non-free google software for our searches. So, the idea
I'm trying to convince myself that I have the power to do this just for
cygwin but I'm still getting stuck on that 'non-free' thing. At some
point pragmatism may win out over zealotry, though.
Please use the resources at cygwin.com rather than sending personal email.
