I actually only meant the new autorebase stuff, but you're oh so right
about the requirement to document how the new postinstall stuff works.
Achim, uhm... sorry abouyt that, but I guess we really have to improve
https://cygwin.com/setup.html on that so all maintainers can educate
themselves how to use the new feature.

Fortunately the web pages are in CVS as well:

  cvs -d :ext:sourceware.org:/cvs/cygwin co htdocs
