A new version of stow, 2.2.0-2, is available in the Cygwin distribution. This is
a Cygwin-only release, that fixes a packaging problem where the perl Stow module
was in the wrong location.  The Stow module has also been separated out into the
new perl-Stow package, which stow now depends on.

stow manages the installation of local software packages by creating sets of
symlinks from the installed location (e.g. /usr/local) to a stow directory (e.g.
/usr/local/stow/emacs) where the real files live.  This allows you to keep
packages separate, while making them appear to be installed in the same place.
