I am afraid that I am not sure what you mean by beta-test but I don't think that the program needs to be tested at all.

Any reason for sending this multiple times?

What everyone seems to be missing is this:

ccdoc is already part of the distribution.

That's what I mean by "beta test".  I don't understand why you'd send a
"ready for experimentation" message here.  Do you see any other messages
like that in this mailing list?

No, but the setup.html specifically refers to "experimentation" in step 9 of the "submitting a package" guidelines.

This version of ccdoc has been released to sourceforge and is already in the public domain.

The reason I submitted it to this group for approval was because I was bit confused by the cygwin submission documentation and wasn't sure whether I got the directory structures right in the tar files. Here is the directory structure for the binary release (ccdoc-08.41-1.tar.bz2):

Why are you having problems figuring out how to package this after having already provided it once before:

I'm thoroughly confused.  You are the package maintainer but you, and
everyone else are treating this like a new experience.

It is a new experience, sort of. This time I tried to the follow the http::// instructions as closely as possible. In doing so, I ran across a number of things that appeared different than last time:

1. Version number appeared to be <major>.<minor>.
2. The patch file was supposed to be hard coded to /usr/src/foo-vendor-release.patch.
3. Binary release files went to /usr/share/man and /usr/share/doc.

I think that is where I got into trouble.
