release, right now /usr/doc/<package>-<version> documentation is supported in
the binary tar.gz, support for the /usr/doc/cygwin directory cygwin-specific
documentation) will be added soon

o source archive distributed as original source and patch-file; standard src-tar
file will follow
o cygwin-specific README and PATCH are soon stored in the source archive, under

archive itself).

MAINTAINER STATUS:

I will maintain the package

PACKAGING STATUS:

When tested this package should go to the contrib directory

NEVERENDINGTHANKS STATUS:
2.000.0000+ thanks go directly to Charles Wilson who has created the dll version
of this.
Without his work on dll'izing apps this all would never have happened!

Comments and test reports welcome!
