I have just uploaded a long-overdue update to the Cygwin documentation
package.  This package provides man and info pages for cygwin utilities
and *some* of the Cygwin api.  It reflects the current state of Cygwin
and newlib as of this date.

Thanks to scripts created by the dearly missed Joshua Franklin, this
documentation is autogenerated from Cygwin's sgml documentation and
newlib's texinfo documentation.  Since this is an automated conversion,
I'm sure that there are some transcription errors.  But, with luck,
what's available is better than no updated documentation at all.

There are still some things missing.  For instance: "ldd" is not yet
documented and the html documentation is missing.  But, at least, after
months of one-and-off strugging with docbook, I now have a foundation
for improvement.  I do hope to make regular updates as things are added
or changed so it should now no longer be years between releases.
