A subscriber-only list for discussing packaging issues regarding applications that are distributed with the Cygwin DLL. If you are maintaining or volunteering to maintain one of the packages that is distributed with the Cygwin net releases you should be subscribed to this list. This list is intended for discussing solutions. It is not (with one exception) for bug reports. 4243 19847

A list for submitting patches to the Cygwin DLL and the other components of the "winsup" directory (if you aren't sure what this means, then you shouldn't be sending email here). Discussions of supplied patches are also acceptable, of course. Only subscribers may submit email to this list. 593 3139

This list is NOT meant for Cygwin support of any kind. This is a chat list. This is just random chitchat and continuation of threads that have veered completely off-topic on the main list. Please use the main list for cygwin support questions. No profanity, no commercial posts, and minimal flaming, please. 1054 3824

A low volume, moderated list set up to provide answers and limited discussion about Cygwin licensing. Please ask questions here if you are unclear about Red Hat licensing or Cygwin's standard GPL licensing. The GPL FAQ and the Cygwin Licensing Page are mandatory reading before posting here. First time posters should indicate that they have read both of these before sending a question or risk having their message rejected. 30 87
