Subject: Cygwin packager for DocBook releases?

The docbook-xml and docbook-xsl packages for Cygwin are currently
orphaned and in need of a new maintainer. The latest docbook-xsl
package available for Cygwin is 1.69.1, released 2 years ago.

If you're a Cygwin user, I'd like to encourage you to consider
adopting the docbook-xsl and/or docbook-xml packages. If you were
to take over those packaging responsibilities, I can offer to
provide as much help as I can from the upstream (DocBook Project)
side, and to put you in contact with packagers from other
distributions (Mandriva, MacPorts, Fedora/Red Hat, Debian) who
might also be able to give you some general guidance.

As far as help with specifics of Cygwin packaging, I think you can
get that help on the cygwin-apps mailing list:


If you think it's important for Cygwin to have up-to-date DocBook
packages, I hope you'll consider stepping forward to help make it
