The GPL licence was never discussed. I don't know what newlib wants.

No news from Elfyn, so I have packaged it.

minires-0.97-1 contains only the dll, the LICENCE and the README
minires-devel-0.97-1 contains the .h and .a, as well as a postinstall to
 link libresolv.a (if it doesn't exist) to libminires.dll.a, but no 
 LICENCE nor README (they would be identical to the previous ones). 
The two source packages are identical. Do we need two ?

setup.hint should be used for both minires-0.97-1 and minires-devel-0.97-1
I put it in the Libs category. Anything else, e.g. System?

Review? Vote?


# minires-0.97-1 setup.hint
sdesc: "A simple synchronous non caching stub resolver."
ldesc: "A simple synchronous non caching stub resolver
providing the basic functionality of bind.
It interfaces to Windows to find the DNS servers."
