discuss yours. However, a simple search for the file that is the topic of
the root of this thread will yield over 12,000 matches, and nearly all
appear to be "missing-bug" related. Thus, my criticism has credential and is
well deserved.

Well, I did the following Google search:


This seemed like a fairly obvious search to me.  I got 2 results.  The first
was the original poster with a similar problem and the second was the reply
from someone on this list.  The person (Brian Dessent) explained how to find
the needed package.

Furthermore, if Cygwin wants to be used by the windows community, then it
needs to be palatable to windows users. Not Linux users who occasionally
find themselves forced to use a windows box. Many of us are competent
developers who have better things to do than spend time pouring through
install procedures and innumerable tar files when modern methods have
rendered that kind of delivery, in this context, utterly unnecessary.

It is not a goal of this project to have these tools be used by the "windows
community".  However, if individuals or groups in this community find the
tools useful, it is also not a goal to keep them from using them. ;-)
