I'm here 'till 18:00 CET (more or less) both today and tomorrow unless
some real life decides to intrude in the agenda; and I mean life as in
life: a close friend of mine is in the process of fork()-ing ;-)

As a FreeBSD Port mantainer and CygWin package mantainer, I really look
forward it; I never liked the "we include it all" approach much, even if
I can appreciate its reasons...

I'll be testing CygWin shortly.

Cygwin is a life-saver in that regard.
I use its rxvt-zsh even to execute plain win32 commands...
I can't suffer cmd.exe lack of features!

If you have doubts regarding CygWin, ask me (I'm on IRC right now, but
also in mail or on Jabber...).

Yup ;-)

My personal plans include continuing work on nvm.lapo.selectors, but
that's lower priority than things we can do better as a summit-crowd, as
I can work on that anytime else too.

PS: I guess the american part of the globe will not be online for at
least 4 more hours...
