Thanks Ken,
Do you have to run something to regen the docs, FAQ.html, and push to the web
site, or does it run periodically, so I can follow up to the OP and get feed
back from the responder?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

No, sorry.  I don't know how/when that's done.

I believe all the built cygwin documentation files are present in the

website.

This is usually only done when a cygwin release is made.
