I assume that you mean William Hoffman and William Sheehan.  I was
discounting William Hoffman since he helped develop the patch.

I think you're somehow misinterpreting my request.  I wasn't asking you
to do anything other than hold off incorporating this patch into the
make sources.

William Hoffman did promote the patch on the cygwin list.  That's why
William Shehan mentioned he was "working from a link posted to the
Cygwin mailing list".  William Hoffman got the URL for the patch wrong
so maybe it would be useful for William Hoffman to send an updated
pointer to the correct patch there.
