[ANNOUNCEMENT] New package: pv

pv has been uploaded to cygwin

"Pipe Viewer - is a terminal-based tool for monitoring the progress of data through a pipeline. It can be inserted into any normal pipeline between two processes to give a visual indication of how quickly data is passing through, how long it has taken, how near to completion it is, and an estimate of how long it will be until completion.
Additional support is available for multiple instances working in tandem, to given a visual indicator of relative throughput in a complex pipeline"

New packages:
- pv-1.3.4-1.tar.bz2
- pv-1.3.4-1-src.tar.bz2

This monitoring tool was created in 2002 and is already present in almost every GNU/Linux and BSD distribution.

- The only runtime requirement is libintl8.
- To build it you need: binutils, gcc4, gettext-devel, libiconv, make, readline.
- It includes localized messages in english, german, french, polish and portuguese.

There is a known issue: pv can't lock terminal on cygwin when using the -c option, but this won't either affect any data or kill the process.
