Time to close hackers-win32?

Dave Page
It occurs to me that there is no longer any great need to have a
separate hackers list for win32 development. Perhaps we should close it
down now and keep all development on -hackers?

Regards, Dave.

I also think this is a good idea. The number of "win32 only issues of
-hacker level" is significantly smaller now, and having to bounce people
between the lists can be kind of annoying...

I believe we should close pgsql-cygwin also.

The cygwin users should ask at the official cygwin list as described in
the README and CYGWIN announcements, not at the pgsql-cygwin list.
Most problems are cygwin specific, others are carried in the FAQ_README
and the seperate /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/postgresql-x.x.x.README

If so, I'll write a documentation patch.

Agreed.
