    I greatly appologize! I wanted to include these possible
appologies in original announcement, but just thought: after all, we
all doing same thing, namely gnu-win32 (btw, isn't that trademark of
Cygnus, the Red Hat company?). While this list is of course dedicated
and owned by cygwin, it's de-facto mother list of all
Unix/Gnu-on-win32 lists, and have grown others (such as mingw32) off
itself. I also think my little stuff indebted to cygwin by its birth,
and hoped I could use that wonderful possibility - to announce it
once, and rejoice cygwin people with that announcement. And of course, my
little stuff is not competitor of cygwin (competitor? ridiculous. have
years of work of many people were put into it? does it offer that level
of support?), but rather an (spiritual) offspring targeted at niche
intentinally left out by cygwin. After all, that's what free software
is all about.

   I once again would like to say that was one-time announcemnt for
information of gnu-win32 comminity. Under no circumstances I planned
to continue that announcing or start discussions here. If even that
was illicit, I would like to ask pardon from all cygwin community.

  Thank you for your support.
