Chet's announcement is for vanilla upstream bash, and not for the cygwin
port - cygwin-announce would be the wrong place, as building Chet's
pristine version loses out on several features (such as my igncr patch)
that various cygwin users have come to expect.  I'll announce the official
cygwin port of readline 6.0 and bash 4.0 to cygwin-announce once I've
finished building and testing them (and it won't be for at least a few
more days).  I don't know why Chet thought he had to cc the cygwin list
about the vanilla upstream release, but I've asked him to reduce the size
of his cc list for future announcements.
