The OP posted the description of this mailing list but he skipped the
first sentence: "a high volume list for discussion of just about all
things related to the Cygwin community release." Discussions of how SFU
deals with newlines or how U/WIN works with ActiveState perl do not have
anything to do with the community release.
As I've previously stated, I don't mind restrained comparisons on the
order of "U/WIN allows chmod to work on FAT32 partitions could Cygwin
use the same technique?" Relation of experiences with U/WIN or other
products both postive and negative are off-topic here.
As Dave Korn indicated, I set up the cygwin-talk list for this kind of
thing. The only downside to using that forum is that sometime you have
to share your computer with a flatulant hippo. That seems like a small
price to pay.
