The nfs-server package is now available for experimentation.

This package is a port of the Universal NFS server.  It contains
an NFS daemon (rpc.nfsd) and a mount daemon (rpc.mountd).  Unlike
other NFS daemons, this NFS server runs entirely in user space.
This makes it a tad slower than other NFS implementations, and
also introduces some awkwardnesses in the semantics (for instance,
moving a file to a different directory will render its file handle

Changes and limitations relative to the original nfs-server source:

    * initial Cygwin port based on work by Rico Junio
    * exports file access control checks disabled
    * exented group info disabled
    * added nfs-server-config script for initial setup

                       *** INSTALLATION ***
