RE: DoD Security Clearance for Cygwin?

I replied directly to Dennis. I know Cygwin showed up on an
"approved" list of open source tools that was circulated here
about a year ago.  What was involved in the approval process
I have little insight into.

In a bit of irony / humor, I remember Cygwin being on the
list, but GNAT was not.  Humor of a formerly DOD mandated language
not appearing on the list aside, the additional layer of 
humor was that apparently noone had asked for it.

Sorry, my child go me up early crouping, and I have a weird 
sense of humor anyway.

Perhaps Wayne would have an idea of this since he also works for the
DoD.  Wayne, do you know what the word is on this?
