alternatives provides a framework for managing installation
of multiple packages that provide similar features, and
selecting between them.

[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-999 ]]

This is the first release specific for cygwin-1.7; there are
only trivial differences between this package and the
simultaneously-released alternatives-1.3.30c-3 for cygwin-1.5.
These are mostly documentation related (the README references
cygport-0.9.5 and cygwin-1.7.0-45, and the /usr/share/doc/
layout is influenced by the cygport changes between 0.4.x
and 0.9.x).

CHANGES (since 1.3.30c-2)
* Fork for cygwin-1.7 development
* Add /etc/alternatives/README file, as suggested by
  Phil Betts (http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2009-03/msg00926.html)
* Some internal build changes.
* Update to gettext-0.17
