Perhaps. But it's not a Nabble requirement that the Cygwin web site be
avoided. And since Nabble really has nothing whatsoever to do with Cygwin,
using it as a source of data for anything Cygwin isn't a good idea. If the
OP needed to know if he was posting to the right forum, a trip to the Cygwin
site would seem to be in order. Also, it seems it's time to once again note
that this isn't a paid support service. One isn't guaranteed a response
in any particular time-frame or even ever. The volunteers here answer
questions as their time and knowledge permit. Usually, if no one answers
a particular thread, it's because no one has a good response, at least
at that time. But the problem reports are always read by everyone on this
list, including the Cygwin developers.
