[upload] typespeed-0.6.2-1

(and usual *.sig GPG signatures on them)

It install the high score file in /var/games/typespeed.score.
Do you think that's good?
Or where else?

setup.hint updated with (requires += libintl2):

sdesc: "Test your typing speed, and get your fingers' CPS"
ldesc: "Typespeed gives your fingers' cps (total and correct), typoratio
and some
points to compare with your friends.
Typespeed's idea is ripped from ztspeed (a dos game made by Zorlim). Idea
of the game should be clear to anyone, just type and type it fast, or be a
lewser."
category: Games
requires: cygwin libintl2 libncurses8

Re: missing xterm dependency?

OK, so the problem is that emacs 21.2-13 depends on libtiff4, but 22.1-3
depends on libtiff5.  For now, I've added both versions of the library to
the setup.hint (since I don't know of any way to make the library
dependency version-specific), and we can change setup.hint later once
emacs 22 is promoted to current.

Uploaded, leaving 0.4.4-2 as previous.  Do you want 0.4.4-1 deleted?

that is the right place.

[itp] Coda filesystem

Hello,

   This is a request for feedback on whether adding the packages that
make up the Coda filesystem would be something that would be supported.
I haven't taken the time to produce the packages yet, but would like to know
whether it would be "worth my time" to do so.

   Current state:  
         Coda is a distributed file system (http://coda.cs.cmu.edu) that has run
on UNIX-like systems for a long time.  There is currently active support for
Linux and NetBSD with some moderate support for FreeBSD.    Over the 
past few years, there has been development of a kernel module for 
Windows that has now reached a point of stability that makes Coda run well
in Windows.

         Coda for Windows would not work without Cygwin because the kernel
module passes requests to get files from the file server to a user space
daemon, venus. While there are some changes to venus for the Windows 
environment, venus still  can not run without cygwin.   The same is true for
most of the user-land binaries that support the Coda filesystem.

         CMU currently runs a private mirror of the cygwin distribution that 
includes two local packages, coda-base and coda-devel.   coda-base is all
the cygwin binaries required and coda-devel is a "meta package" that just
exists to provide the prerequisites to rebuild the coda-base package.    There
is also special built .exe that is distributed on the Coda ftp site that provides
for the kernel module installation and  configuration of a Coda client.    
(coda-base is part of base in this private mirror since the sole reason
for the mirror is to support Coda.)

Re: [itp] Coda filesystem


I am not an expert of current distributed files systems, but for cygwin wouldn't 
MogileFS be easier to implement (even though its not a fs in and of itslef). From my understanding it only
requires perl and mysql I believe.

The real intent of my questions was more like:

   We are already managing cygwin packages in a private
cygwin mirror for Coda.   We would like to make the packages
be on all cygwin mirrors.

I wasn't asking just to bring in a distributed file system.   And
Coda and MogileFS are not really similar file systems.

From the web site:

 " you don't run regular Unix applications or databases against MogileFS.
 It's meant for archiving write-once files and doing only sequential reads."

While you can't have a database file in Coda either,  Coda is a full R/W
distributed file system with "disconnected operation".   But I don't want
to end up in a discussion of Coda vs any other FS, I just wanted a 
discussion of inclusion of Coda or not.

Test and upload: ctags 5.7

Package files:

	http://tangentsoft.net/cygwin/ctags-5.7-1-src.tar.bz2			 
http://tangentsoft.net/cygwin/ctags-5.7-1.tar.bz2

This just reflects the release of a new upstream version.

Although I've been the ctags maintainer for nearly two years, this is 
only my second package submission due to the long release cycle, so 
please check it.  It built without problems, but I'm still a newbie at 
this, so what do I know?

I did see the discussion about etags after the Emacs 22 packages were 
released, but the consensus in the thread seemed to be that no change 
was necessary.  Consequently, these packages were made the same way as 
the 5.6 ones were.  If that's not okay, let's discuss.
