cellular phones, and Skype calls to/from cellphones, via chan_celliax)
To:, Giovanni Maruzzelli <>

Dear Corinna,

maybe the wording of the announce was wrong from my part, because:

* - in the CD you can only find a targzipped file that you have to
untar yourself in your normal Cygwin installation (the LiveCD itself
is a Knoppix)

* - the only Cygwin part that I'm distributing with the CD is your
last setup.exe (the installer that connects to your distribution site
for instruction on how to install Cygwin), for users that does not
have a Cygwin installation, and if you prefere I can remove it from
the CD (also if setup.exe itself checks for new releases of itself on
your distribution)

* - I made the announce to the Cygwin developers mailing list because
I think is a news that can be interesting for Cygwin developers that
someone has ported, and made it work, Asterisk on Cygwin (first time,
I think), and also because various part of my channel are coded
specifically for Cygwin, and some others for win32

* - Full sources are available for all Celliax stuff (is all GPL),
with access via svn that is also automatized by a script

* - I included the Cygwin project, and also your name, in the credits
part in the source code, in the website, and in the announcement

I'm very sorry for this, and please suggest me how to correctly behave
toward the Cygwin Developer's Community for the future.

I didn't bother to download the live CD, but obviously I don't like the
idea at all to have a Cygwin on this CD, which in turn scrambles the
mount points in the registry for an already existing Cygwin
installation.  I positively assume your installation will carefully
check if a Cygwin installation already exists and will NOT overwrite the
mount points.

Btw., does your live CD come with sources of the Cygwin DLL and other
GPLed components?  If not, you're violating the GPL, unless you offer
the sources of these components on your web page, too.  It's not
enough to point to the Cygwin home page for this, you have to provide
the sources by your own means, and they must match the versions you
used to create the binaries.

Please refrain from making advertisements for your third-party product
on the Cygwin mailing lists in future.
