While I can fully appreciate the need to focus on more important
things, and completely recognize that you of all people have done so
much more than your fair share and deserve a break, please let me
feebly attempt to complement you by stating what a disaster this is
for the GCL project :-).

In all seriousness, should your circumstances ever change, you are
always welcome here, in whatever capacity you may choose to serve.

Do you have a recommendation for someone who might aspire to fill the
role you have carried so admirably?

More to the immediate point, could someone with a mingw environment
please investigate the consequences of reverting

on branch Version_2_6_8pre for maxima, acl2, and axiom?  We have
another application should anyone be interested as well, HOL88.

BTW, is there any reliable emulation/cross-compilation environment for
mingw on linux yet?
