Unusual request: get bison 1.35 back as prev version

Sigh, <http://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/source/1.0.2/source.html> and
I don't have any authority in that project, the build of the OOo 1.0.2
sources is tested with bison 1.35 and current cygwin 1.3.x tools.
(It's called stable release)
I will not merge the changes from the current developer version of a
500 MB source monster to the stable (1.0.2) release, there are some
people more involved.
>>>So, no, I'm not going to put the old version of bison back. I'm sorry.
>>Hmm, OK, but you could do me a favor and put the 1.35 release (only the

>>just mail it to me. This would spare me at least the rebuild of the

Ok, that should please the GPL, even if it is not the cygwin source
package that "build" the binary package.
