Hi folks,

I took over maintainership for the procps package, which hadn't been
updated since 2007.  I now update the package to the last procps package
3.2.8 from 2009, added a few tweaks, and especially built it for 32 and
(tada!) 64 bit.

Please note that with the current Cygwin 1.7.25, procps -f/-l will print
two question marks in place of the controlling tty for processes which
don't have a controlling tty.  Usually it should only print a single
question mark in this case, but the reason here is a minor bug in the
Cygwin DLL which will be fixed in the next release.  I hope that's not
too disturbing for the time being.

Have fun,
