RE: Source code for binaries offered at ?

Hello Max,

This is a good point.  I have the source downloaded and in backups somewhere
around here - so it can be located if needed.  While I'm in the process of
putting together a new archive that contains more GPL disclaimers (and more
utilities), I wish to be in compliance by offering a CDROM for those that
desire it.

Best Regards,

If you don't package up the specific source *now* how will you know and
obtain the source when you do receive a request?

There is no guarantee that the exact version you are distributing will still
be on the Cygwin mirrors.
