The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

* man-db-2.6.7-2

man-db is an implementation of the standard Unix documentation system 
accessed using the man command. It uses a Berkeley DB database in place 
of the traditional flat-text whatis databases.

This release removes the cache database generation from the postinstall 
step due to its often excessive length.  Users will need to manage the 
database themselves with mandb(1) in order to use whatis/apropos(1).
