Re: [1.7] Updated: {emacs,emacs-X11,emacs-el}-23.0.92-1

Dear Ken,

First, thank you so much for having taken care of Emacs!

I enclose a patch to rmail.el, which I always have to apply, because
version 21.2 normally attempts to create files with "po:", but neither
Windows nor Cygwin tolerate that. Current rmail.el checks for Windows,
but doesn't for Cygwin.

This has already been fixed upstream, as of emacs 22.1. Here's an excerpt from the current rmail.el (emacs 23.0.92):

    (concat ".newmail-"
	     (if (memq system-type '(windows-nt cygwin ms-dos))
		 ;; cannot have colons in file name
		 (replace-regexp-in-string ":" "-" file)

By the way, the patch is no longer needed; as of cygwin 1.7, it's legal to have colons in file names.


P.S. For future reference, it's best to send comments about cygwin packages to the cygwin mailing list so that others can benefit from them also.
