Hi,

A while ago Markus Hoenicka announced that some Cygwin SGML/XML packages
were available for testing.  There weren't any major problems reported (just
a few minor packaging/naming issues which have been fixed), so is there any
chance these can be added to the standard Cygwin distribution?

Quite a few open source projects (e.g. KDE, Gnome) are using DocBook, so
being able to manipulate these docs with Cygwin would be useful.  :-P

I'd rather these packages were added as "test" versions to begin with.

These packages are contributed & maintained by me (Jon Foster):
> sgml-base
> xml-base
> docbook-sgml
> docbook-xml

These are contributed & maintained by Markus Hoenicka:
> openjade
> docbook-dsssl
> docbook-xsl
> tei-xml
> tei-xsl
