Looks like the Windows-style paths support has been accepted as an
upstream patch. When can Cygwin pick this up?
There were actually 2 people who felt qualified to answer my question.
Presumably only one is the package owner. Were there a list of package
owners, I could have ignored the errant response.
I spent some time browsing the Cygwin site looking for information
about package maintainers. Most of what I found was how to become a
package maintainer for an as-yet-unsupported package. What I was
really looking for was a list of the current maintainers, and
possibly information about how to help get an already-owned package
Contacting package owners is done through this list. The Cygwin package
owner for 'make' has already replied to this thread.
Yes, I assumed this, but it doesn't answer my question. I guess I
didn't really take the time to craft something the package owner could
actually respond to, though. My query was a rather ham-handed attempt
to get the make package owner to justify not having picked up an
upstream patch that was (somewhat) specifically targeted for Cygwin.
Maintenance of bash and make seem to follow very different
philosophies for updates (the former seems much more active), am I
They are two different people.
Now that I've got the package owner's response, I think I'm happy ;)
