What is this discussion doing here?
I'm getting REALLY sick of having to continually police this mailing list.
I don't know why people can't keep the really simple rule straight.
Does this have something to do with applications that are distributed
with cygwin? No? Then keep it in firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's particularly puzzling why you would redirect this here when there is
no guarantee that the original poster is even subscribed to cygwin-apps.
