There's the usual misconception about the GPL. If you create an
application which is linked against the Cygwin DLL (or any other GPLed

at all to distribute the source code to your collegues. If one of them
really wants it, he can always ask you, right? Only if you provide the
binaries to customers or to the world in some way, you are supposed to
provide the sources codes as well in a GPL-compatible way.
In a publication I have offered to furnish on request the source code
and windows executable for a program that I personally run under cygwin.
Don't I have to use mingw for the publicly distributed version, or
else bundle the executable with cygwin source code? As I understand,
simply providing a link to the cygwin web site does not satisfy the license.
