Thanks for your great work Jason. Unfortunately my free time is currently

I guess proftpd-1.2.9rc2p-1/README.cygwin is part of the official proftpd
And all in proftpd-1.2.9rc2p-1/CYGWIN-PATCHES/* is part of the cygwin version
Then I think best would be to submit patches for proftpd-1.2.9rc2p-1/README.cygwin
to the www.proftpd.org team and to remove
those parts from CYGWIN-PATCHES/README which are (correct) in README.cygwin.
