To obtain the source of the latest release of the cygwin-x-doc package start the cygwin setup, select directories and mirror and select the package cygwin-x-doc from the category X11. Mark the checkbox labelled src and install. This will install the documentation source in /usr/src/cygwin-x-doc.
The documentation source code is available from sourceware.org CVS. To obtain them please use the follow commands:
$ cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/cygwin-xfree login CVS password: <hit return> $ cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/cygwin-xfree co doc [output as files are checked out] $ (cd doc && autoreconf) [output as autoconfiguration scripts are regenerated]
You should now have the sources in an directory called doc.
If you just want to look at the Cygwin/X documentation source, use the CVSweb interface to the Cygwin/X documentation tree.
