Under http://drupal.org/node/23409, there are two nearly identical book pages on applying patches in Windows using Cygwin:
Can I redo that entire section on applying patches in Windows in the following manner and resubmit them?
1.) Top level page: Applying patches in Windows
2.) Child page 1: Gnuwin32 diff and patch >> http://drupal.org/node/32635
3.) Child page 2: Patching with cygwin >>combining nodes 23164 and 32875; will cover installing cygwin, patching a single file, patching multiple files.
An aside: Shouldn't *applying patches* be in the User or admin guide? Or in them also?
