The package 'X-startup-scripts' is now available with the Cygwin

This package contains scripts for starting the X Server, including 
startxwin.bat,, startxdmcp.bat, and startx.

This package replaces the XFree86-startup-scripts package, which was 
hand generated from files only present on my system.  In addition, this 
package now contains the 'startx' and 'xinitrc' files that were 
previously distributed in the XFree86-bin and XFree86-etc packages, 
respectively, as well as source code for the 'run' utility that is 
distributed with this package.  This package is complete with source 
code and a package build script.  The intention of  this is to remove 
the dependence upon myself and my computer for this  package.  Now 
anyone with an interest in this package can modify it and submit patches 
and/or request to takeover maintainership.

Note that the 'startx' and 'xinitrc' files have been modified to make 
them start the server in the same manner as 'startxwin.bat'. 
Additionally, "-clipboard" is now being passed to XWin.exe by default.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it, select "XFree86"
and then click on the appropriate field until the above announced
version number appears if it is not displayed already.

If your mirror doesn't yet have the latest version of this package after
24 hours, you can either continue to wait for that site to be updated or
you can try to find another mirror.

I would appreciate if you would use this mailing list rather than
emailing me directly.  This includes ideas and comments about the setup
utility or Cygwin/X in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin/X mailing
list is the appropriate place.
