Well, it's not quite like that, but there is now something new at
<http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/> that I think everyone will like.
I got rid of some of the embarrassing outdated revision information and also
the author's names. I was going to alphabetize them and add my own name, but
then I thought maybe DJ doesn't like getting emails that start, "I see that
you're an expert on Cygwin..." so I just removed them all. I can put them
back if that's best. And, there is now a decent PDF.
