Re: ProFTPD 1.2.9rc2: please fix the readme file

Hello Jason

Thanks for your great work Jason. Unfortunately my free time is currently
quite spare...

I guess proftpd-1.2.9rc2p-1/README.cygwin is part of the official proftpd
package(?) [].
And all in proftpd-1.2.9rc2p-1/CYGWIN-PATCHES/* is part of the cygwin version

Then I think best would be to submit patches for proftpd-1.2.9rc2p-1/README.cygwin
to the team and to remove 
those parts from CYGWIN-PATCHES/README which are (correct) in README.cygwin.

OK, i'll do that.

I think the "" are useless?
