Re: status of bash-3.0-12

Aargh.  bash-3.0-12 depends on snapshots (it won't work with
cygwin-1.5.18).  I am waffling between putting out a bash-3.0-13 that
works with cygwin-1.5.18, vs. waiting for cygwin-1.5.19.  Meanwhile, I am
also in the middle of trying to build libreadline6-5.1-1, so that I can
then build bash-3.1-1.

OK then, I guess you've convinced me.  I will downgrade my cygwin to
1.5.18 long enough to build bash-3.0-13 (hopefully within the next week),
announce it, before focusing on building bash-3.1-1 as the new
experimental version that depends on a snapshot.
