Re: [ITP] Macaulay2 1.1
You must be reading her message differently from the way I did.
In any case, if it were to turn out that Macaulay 2 were interesting to cygwin,
but one of the libraries Macaulay 2 depends on was not interesting to cygwin,
then I wouldn't have to package that library, would I? I could just include
the source for it in the Macaulay 2 package. Otherwise it's a catch-22.
So I think the question of whether ITP's for the dependent packages would
succeed on their own merits is moot.
