I'm actually somewhat stable right now, staying with some in-laws
with broadband and will be here for about a week. Then in late August I
should be moved to Seattle and back for good (life allowing). I read up on
most of the cygwin-apps traffic last night and might be able to tackle cygwin@
Speaking of David S-B, he had been AWOL even the last couple months I was
around, but I hadn't gotten to the point of touching "his" files. Maybe it's time.

This is of course fine, too. The cygwin-doc READMEs should be able to get
you started. I'll be somewhat available, but don't expect same-day replies.

That will probably work. I've actually been pondering, and have about
decided I want to, completely reorganize the User's Guide. Right now
the structure seems to be a holdover from the Red Hat CD release, and
I'd like it to be more in line with how the Cygwin online community uses
it. That's probably a bigger project than I want to tackle this week,
so maybe I can add something to "Using Cygwin" in the next few days.
Maybe by the end of summer (that's the equinox for the astronomically
challenged) I can do the other thing.
Ideas are welcome.
