However, Jari Aalto has not posted to cygwin-apps since November of last
year, and does not appear to have responded to private queries. He has other
packages in the PPL; should these be [temporarily] de-listed?
Should we begin a countdown toward putting maintainership of cabextract up
I think so.
The problem with the cabextract package was the same as the problems
with all of Jari's other packages: the build script had errors. For
example, you cannot download the -src of cabextract and build a new
version for distribution. If you do, the build script within that new
-src package will be called cabextract-0.6.1-2-0.6.1-2.sh, or some such.
