  To: Cygwin/X announce list

Dear Internet,

It no longer makes much sense to have a separate list for Cygwin X 
related traffic, so the cygwin-xfree list is now officially deprecated.

Reasons for this decision include:
- the level of traffic on the cygwin-xfree list is low
- splitting the traffic in this way currently serves no useful purpose
- the distinction between what is and is not an X issue is artificial, 
vague, and often ignored

The cygwin-xfree list will continue to operate, but I suggest and 
encourage you to use the main cygwin list for all your cygwin X server 
and X application related questions, bug reports, moans, gripes, whines 
and patches ;-).

The Cygwin X website and documentation will be updated to point to the 
main cygwin list.

Mail delivery for the cygwin-xfree list may be turned off at some future 
date, but even if that happens, the list archives will continue to be 

Live Long and Prosper,

Volunteer Cygwin/X X Server maintainer
