  Correct.  Cygwin relies entirely on the underlying 'doze OS for file-system
support, device drivers, and so on.  Since there is no 'doze support for jffs2,
there is no way to format and mount such a filesystem under cygwin., of course ;-)

  That's because ttere are several projects mirrored there.  If you look at the
top level directory listing at, you'll see
that it has a copy of the entire directory tree.  Only stuff
under the cygwin subdirectory is cygwin related; the stuff under jffs2 is indeed

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
