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.
Life is short - so eat dessert first!
