Maybe I should have been more clear. Unless its on MSDN and does not
require downloading a SDK package then they will accept it. Never mind
the fact that the cabinet.dll information is published in a SDK on MSDN
and the PSDK. They will not accept it as you have to click though a
EULA to get to it. I know. I went through the trouble of asking the
Wine authors to relicense the FCI/FDI headers only to have the Mingw
people say "find it on MSDN" which I did, in a downloadable SDK. After
I sent that they said "we can not accept this, it has a EULA"
Take a look at the headers that are in Wine that are missing in our
w32api. I doubt most of them are even in the latest w32api. The Wine
people are happy to work with us to fix them. Should we rewrite them
from scratch only to be told by the Mingw people sorry MSDN has a
broken URL or what you submit does not match, even if I can prove it is
wrong via a real world regression test.
I don't want to fight about it. If you want to duplicate a lot of work
go ahead and I will keep my mouth shut.
