You need to be aware of some issues regarding licensing:
I am new to this. Please advice me. What is the easiest/best way
to do this?
Thanks I changed the things.
Why did you opt to use the AGPL, when pspp doesn't have any networking function?
Wrong copy. I intended to use GPL.
Why don't you consider making a canonical Cygwin package per
http://cygwin.com/setup.html ? This will make your work easier, and
the technicalities of complying with the licences are taken care of by
Cygwin (at least I hope they are). It will also make your package
smaller, and (hopefully) easier to install.
Unfortunately Cygwin won't work, because some packages are out of date. If you use Cygwin, you can't use the GUI. You have to mix Cygwin with Cygwin-ports. The files are compatible, the packages not. This is a real pain to install it. The howto I did it is described in /usr/share/doc/PSPP_setup)
For now, I think this is at least a package to show what PSPP can do for the users. I don't pretend that this is the best/only solution. It is simpy a solutions which worked. Maybe in the futher a Cygwin package could be a nice solution. Maybe Mingw is an even better solution. (Although I hope people dump Windows for that time. :-) ) Maybe something else.
And as I said in the doc's, if anybody wants to take care of an other port I will be glad to give her/him all the support I can.
