It seems that I'm forced to change my waiting call. :-)

Please rename the __CYGWIN__ and __CYGWIN  references in
qmake/generators/unixmake2.cpp into CYGWIN_TEST and
check in your changes you have requested yesterday.

$ cd <your checked out qt-3 dir>
$ cvs ci -m "first changes"

I think it is not necessary to release more than one qt 3.1 releases, so the
snapshots and rc candicates could be checked in into the same branch.

Please import the new snapshot of the qt sources (probably rc2 ?) on the branch
QT_IMPORT with a tag name qt_3_1_0_rc2, so that you can build a diff.

If you don't know how to, see below.

$cd <your qt-3-snapshot>
$cvs import -m "QT 3.1.0 rc2 Release" qt-3 QT_IMPORT qt_3_1_0_rc2

$ cerate a diff file
$ cd <your checked out qt-3 dir>
$ cvs diff -ubB -r qt_3_1_0_rc1 -r qt_3_1_0_rc2  | tee qt310_rc1_rc2.dif
$ patch -p0 <qt310_rc1_rc2.dif
$ cvs ci -m "update to qt3.1.0 rc2"

That was desribed in one of my last mails relating to the qmake created
