I wrote to cygwin list to comment out that I had just ported joe editor
3.0 version to cygwin, and I thought it would be a good idea to include
it in the distro, as its many people's editor of choice.

Gerrit Haase pointed me to the package contributor's guide, and there
I've read its convenient to announce this kind of thing in this list, so
there it goes:

I have no problems in maintaining joe's package for cygwin. I've read
the guide and I'm preparing the neccesary changes to the sources in
order to have joe packages ready in the appropiate packaging format.

Here's a draft of the setup.hint file for public comments:

--- begin setup.hint --

# setup file for Cygwin's version of JOE

WYSIWYG ASCII-text editor. It is a common alternative in the UNIX world
to editors such as vi and Emacs. It includes syntax highlightning for
various programming languages.

Please contact me if you think it's OK to include this package in Cygwin
and/or if any changes are needed
