Updated: autoconf2.5-2.61-1

Autoconf is an extensible package of m4 macros that produce shell 
scripts to automatically configure software source code packages.  The 
autoconf2.5 package contains the latest edition of autoconf in the 2.5x 
release sequence (which includes 2.60, 2.61, etc).

This has been a test: release since 2006-11-21 (and I've been using it 
exclusively since then) with no reported problems except an 
incompatibility with the cygport package (now resolved).

Changes (autoconf2.5-2.60-2 ---> autoconf2.5-2.61-1)

* update to latest upstream release
   + see list of upstream changes below
* requires autoconf-4-1 or better (wrapper)

Test results:
294 tests behaved as expected.
3 tests were skipped.

Updated: cvs-1.11.22-1

CVS is the 'Concurrent Versioning System', a widely-used package for 
maintianing revision histories of source code.  This port is based on 
the official cvs-1.11.22 release.

CHANGES: (since cvs-1.11.17-1)
  * Updated to latest upstream release
    + see /usr/share/doc/cvs-1.11.22/NEWS for upstream fixes
      There were numerous bug fixes since the previous 1.11.21-1 test
      release, and especially so since our most recent official current
      cvs-1.11.17-1.
  * Removed gdbm use.
    This is HUGE, but should have zero impact on end users.
    See comments below.
  * "disappearing conflicts" problem observed in test release
    cvs-1.11.21-1 has been corrected upstream [1]
  * switch to cygport build framework
  * patch from Jay Abel to fix CRLF problem when
    (1) server running on cygwin
    (2) remote users' login shell on the server machine is tcsh
    http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2006-04/msg00226.html

This version has been in test since 2006-12-09, and I've been using it 
exclusively since then, with no reported errors.

***************************************************
*               REMOVING GDBM USE                 *
***************************************************

why?  Because I'm tired of maintaining an out-of-tree, hugely  invasive 
patch that has been rejected upstream (twice, because:). It provides no

Updated: rxvt-unicode-X-7.7-6, rxvt-unicode-common-7.7-6

rxvt-unicode is clone of the familiar rxvt terminal emulator, that 
supports partially supports unicode, with a lot of caveats.

So why bother?  See original announcement at 
http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-announce/2006-05/msg00004.html

Changes since 7.7-5:
===========================================

* Includes updated patch from Thomas Wolff for partial unicode support
   on cygwin.  unicode input is now possible in UTF-8 compliant
   applications, such as mined.
* Better documentation on how to set up your system for UTF-8
   in /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/rxvt-unicode-X-7.7.README
* Now built with --enable-xim (but don't get your hopes up.  It was
   simply necessary for rxvt-unicode to work properly, even though
   there are (very few? none?) existing XIM servers ported to cygwin.)
* Also built with --enable-iso14755. With this support, in a UTF-8
   rxvt-unicode terminal (e.g. one in which LC_CTYPE was set to a UTF-8
   locale PRIOR to luanch) it is possible to enter multibyte characters
   hexadecimally.  Try: hold down LeftAlt+Shift, and press 2 0 a c. You
   should get the Euro symbol -- assuming your using a font that has the
   Euro glyph.

Updated: git-1.4.4.4-1


A new release of git, 1.4.4.4-1, has been uploaded, replacing 1.4.4.3-1 as
the current version.

NEWS:
=====
This is a new upstream release.  See also the package documentation in
/usr/share/doc/git-1.4.4.4/.

This release fixes a cygwin packaging bug.  Upstream changes since
v1.4.4.3 are listed below.

DESCRIPTION:
============
Git is popular version control system designed to handle very large
projects with speed and efficiency; it is used mainly for various open
source projects, most notably the Linux kernel.

Git falls in the category of distributed source code management tools,
similar to e.g. GNU Arch or Monotone (or BitKeeper in the proprietary
world). Every Git working directory is a full-fledged repository with full
revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on network access or a
central server.

UPDATE:
=======
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the
http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your system.
Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up 'git' from
the 'Devel' category.

Updated: readline-5.2.1-5, libreadline6-5.2.1-5


A new release of readline and libreadline6, 5.2.1-5, is available for use,
replacing 5.2.1-4 as the current version.  5.1-5 remains the previous
version, to match the fact that a previous version of bash 3.1 is still
available.

NEWS:
=====
This release merely switches to cygport packaging, now that a version of
cygport exists which is powerful enough for readline's needs.  There are
no functional changes (or if there are, it is a regression).

This version is not strictly binary compatible with readline 5.1; but the
only incompatibility is the removal of a cygwin-specific entry point that
the cygwin-specific bash 3.0 (but not bash 3.1) depended on.  Now that
bash 3.0 is no longer available from the cygwin mirrors, I felt it safe to
drop that cygwin-specific patch.

This version is not strictly behaviorally compatible with readline 5.1.  A
case has been reported where tab completion using bash 3.1 and readline
5.2 does not work quite right.  It is best to stick with either bash
3.1/readline 5.1, or upgrade both programs to bash 3.2.x/readline 5.2.x.
When you use setup.exe to upgrade, this should happen automatically.

See also the upstream documentation in /usr/share/doc/readline-5.2.1/.

DESCRIPTION:
============
The readline library will read a line from the terminal and return it,
allowing the user to edit the line with emacs or vi editing keys.  It also
