I've updated the version of ash to 20040127-2.

This version is a major packaging change.  Cygwin is moving towards
using bash as /bin/sh, as it's the default also on most Linux systems.

To get this done, the bash package and the ash package have now been
updated simultaneuously, to provide a smooth transition to using
bash as sh.  The ash package now doesn't install ash as /bin/sh, but as
/bin/ash instead.  So if anybody wants it, it's still there.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.

If you have general questions or comments, please send them to the
Cygwin mailing list at: "cygwin at cygwin dot com".  I would appreciate
it if you would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
