Actually, I was just going to confine the net release to whatever has
been in a normal release in the past, i.e., no perl.  DJ and I have been
talking about doing a major reorg of the web/ftp site to accomodate
external packages more easily but it will require human bandwidth.

As far as "built using Cygwin v1.0 or using the latest development
snapshots" is concerned, I'm not sure precisely what you mean.  If you
are not releasing libraries or object files, it doesn't matter what
version of cygwin you use as long as the cygwin DLL is named
cygwin1.dll.  The preference would be, of course, that you use the
latest cygwin stub library and latest DLL, however.
