the release of Cygwin 1.7 is imminent and we're doing everything
necessary to release 1.7 next week. The Cygwin 1.5 release will
be kept available only for the sake of the occasional Windows 9x
Therefore, beginning this weekend, the 1.5 release area will not
be updated anymore. Upset will run one last time and then the
1.5 release won't be touched anymore.
This also means that all maintainer who still haven't updated to
Cygwin 1.7 (hopefully nobody) should update ASAP. New packages
are supposed to be 1.7-only packages. The [1.7] tag should be
dropped from release messages. No reason anymore to mention that.
