Re: Archives ??

I think some of this has already been answered by others but I didn't
see answers to everything so:

We only started archiving it at the beginning of Feb so there is only
a little bit of historical mail available.

Please start with the latest snapshot.  If you look for the tag
"FIXME" you'll find quite a few references.  Most refer to
aspects of Cygwin that could be improved.

The pthreads project on sourceware is separate.  If you configure
cygwin specially, you get pthreads support added to the DLL.  But it
needs more work.  If you would like to help with this or anything
else, please do!  :-)

Please let me (or the others) know if you have any other questions
about contributing.
