I think it's time to re-iterate my proposal of having the package
Cygwin-specific READMEs (those in /usr/share/doc/Cygwin) extracted to some
place on the web (a separate directory on the mirrors, perhaps?). Does
this sound feasible? Would it make sense to do this?
CGF, I know upset is no longer publically available, but if you send me
the source, I could submit a patch that does this. Once these are
on-line, it might also make sense to change the package search script to
make README files into links to their on-line locations on the sourceware
And, just to put this in the archives again, having a database of package
release announcements somewhere on-line (keyed by version, so setup could
link to them) would also be helpful.
