Hi Marco,

Thanks for testing again :)

Ah yes, I'm not sure how I managed to do that, they should be in the
cygport file. I'll sort that out tomorrow and notify this list again.

It's not currently in the official repositories of a Linux distro no.
I'm essentially only packaging this for Cygwin because it's a dependency
for DDRescue-GUI, a GUI I wrote for GNU ddrescue. I currently release
for Linux and macOS, and there has been demand for Cygwin, hence me
getting involved with all of this in the beginning really. I would very
much appreciate it if I could get 5 votes, but if not I'll create some
kind of bundle instead. I understand that this is your project and you
may not all want my program in it :)

NB: In programs that bundle cygwin.dll, are the /dev and /cygdrive
folders visible to access devices? I'm hoping the answer is yes because
otherwise my bundle idea probably won't work.
