Ok. I don't mean to shoot you down but I think that the FAQ should
really concentrate on how things are done. So, it should focus on the
steps involved in building cygwin.
I would rather that people were familiar with what they were doing
rather than blindly relying on a python script.
I guess it can't hurt to make the python script available but I want
to be 100% certain that someone is willing to maintain it because you
KNOW that we'll start getting bug reports and "would be nice" reports
So, I would prefer that the cygwin FAQ contain rebuild instructions with
maybe a link to the python script as a "use at your own risk".
