i am starting work faq that covers the gnu development
toolchain, and related issues, on windows.
the purpose of this email is to let everyone interested
know i am working on this, and to request input.
i have been frustrated time and again by needing some
peice of information, and knowing that someone knows it, but
not being able to figure out myself.
specific areas within the above scope to be addressed:
-general state and purpose of each gnu win dist, and availible
-'internals' questions that relate to win and gnu
-info about [your fave feature]
-status of [your fave program here] on [your fave gnu-win here]
-pointers to related docs, standards, and things that are
outside of the faq's general scope, but are asked a lot anyway
(eg, 'how do i make a program using mingw gcc that waters my
[your fave flower here]')
it is my intention to add gratuitous hyperlinks and pointers
to appropriate docs and mailing list postings.
the docuemnt will be kept technical and non-political: i
am including information on non-gnu free and closed software
and all of this. however, i do intend keep the document
free of possible intellectual property issues.
i plan on making the faq availible by Aug 1st.
please write me with any questions or suggestions. also
feel free to write me with specific questions (but i may
direct you elsewhere)
