Well, I hammered something out last night and came up with

It tries to confirm all package-specific information (pulling defaults from
setup.ini), and will craft compatible messages for new package proposals,
updates to new vendor versions, corrections for broken packages, or
announcements to cygwin-announce.

It does not do anything but help you construct an email; the first three
types go to cygwin-apps and can be processed by the extractor script, and
the latter goes to cygwin-announce and is similar to recent messages. The
From:, To:, and Subject: are configurable.

This is just a proof of concept, but should be usable for the time being.
