Re: Packages up for adoption

I could do hexedit.

I downloaded the source package, and was happy to see that you'd cygported it already. It looks to be pretty rarely updated, which is nice from a maintainership standpoint.

I have a couple of questions:

1. There doesn't seem to be a mailing list for the project at its home, which is now (The cygport file gives an older URL.) How do you learn about new releases?

2. I built it from the cygport, and the result seems to work, except that the function keys aren't being interpreted correctly. Is this a problem in MinTTY, in the terminal protocol I've selected (xterm-color), or in hexedit? If the latter, I think I'm signing up to release a -2 to fix it.

3. Is there a good reason for this to remain in the distro along with bvi, other than "it's not vi"?
