Why not use easier categories like they do in slackare?
They got 15 categories plus 'source' and 'contrib' where all the rest
lies, e.g. gcc-3.0 for the brave.
Many will not be needed for cygwin (x, kde, gtk, maybe in future?).
Some programs may also reside in two or more categories to find them
easier like cvs that i put (as a demo) in 'devel' and in 'net'.
Setup knows where the package is so there is no problem if one package
contains both, the runtime and the devel part of something.
As i see now, cygwin is really a development platform:
ash, bash, bzip2, cpio, cygrunsrv, cygwin, fileutls, find, grep, gzip,
hello, login, sh-utils, tar, tcsh, txtutils, util,
clear, cron, diff, file, ghostscript, groff, gsfonts, less, man,
manpages, mt, rxvt, texinfo, time, unzip, vim, which, zip
autoconf, automake, binutils, bison, byacc, ctags, crypt, cvs, dejagnu,
flex, gawk, gcc, gcc_g77, gcc_objc, gdb, gdbm, gettext, gpref, jbigkit,
jpeg6, libpng, libtiff, libtool, m4, make, ncurses, opengl, patch, pcre,
perl, popt, python, readline, regex, sed, strace, termcap, w32api, xpm,
howtos, manyfaqs, minis, newlibman, docs
what the hell is k;)
cvs, lynx, mutt, ncftp, openssh, openssl, rsync, ssmtp, wget
tetex, (tex_bin, tex_doc, transfig, xfig)
expect, tcl, tix, tk
x, xap, xv:
no X (yet)
games, contribs like: irc, mingw, postgresql, squid
