I know about that.

Sorry, that was not my intention. Never.
I've put a lot of work into my fixes, but Cygwin development went off too
fast for me to keep up pace.
There's already a great interest in having ksh on Cygwin at Bell Labs. I'm
interested to get my patches into the official Cygwin release.

Not so odd. I'm not monitoring the mailing list all the time and I don't
have access to the other mail account at the two places.

I know. I'm not that dumb.

It was quite a bunch of things I had to discuss. Along them were copyright
infringements. As you might know, David Korn and Glenn Fowler are working
I am a freelancer, so there are no copyright problems. So we decided that
they should work out the bug reports (some of which turned out to be bugs in
their software), and I do the fixes.
It was meant to prove that AST/ksh works on Cygwin, or, the other way round,
Cygwin is capable to run AST/ksh. It does. q.e.d.
So can we get down to discuss my fixes now?
