Cygwin Package Contributor's Guide
Thu Jun 2 18:42:00 GMT 2005
As a first time user of the Cygwin Package Contributor's Guide,
http://cygwin.com/setup.html, I have a suggestion for improvement:
The guide lists a bunch of items in a numbered list, which would lead
one to believe they are chronological steps. Chronological steps would
be good, too.
But the items are somewhat out of order. #1 is propose the package
on cygwin-apps. #2 talks about whether or not you should propose
at all. It also says to subscribe to cygwin-apps, which is actually
a prerequisite to posting to cygwin-apps (#1).
#1 says to include setup.hint in your proposal. But #5 is create
a setup.hint file.
