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
