Re: Could we have the net releases in an rpm format?
I'm not that familiar with the process of having a whole
system such as cygwin under rpm (or the like). I do realise
that there are quite some extra work to be done. Perhaps
this is simply not feasible for now.
Does anyone have an idea of how this could be done
"semi-automatic", i.e., starting with cygwin-1.1.0 and its
binary and src tarballs?
