I would like to contribute and maintain ImageMagick:

Cool, thanks.

***Reviewer's Caveat***: ImageMagick depends on just about every library
we have :)  I have not created a list of proper dependencies in the
setup.hint file below, nor have I done so for the Cygwin-specific
README.  This is not difficult to do, but it is time-consuming and I
would like to get to bed; I will create this list later.  Or, I would
appreciate it very much if someone else ran 'find -name "*.exe" | xargs
cygcheck' and created a list of required packages for me.

Someone with a full Cygwin install could run

find . -name '*.exe' | xargs cygcheck | sed -e '/\.exe/d' -e 's,\\,/,g' | sort -bu | xargs -n1 cygpath -u | xargs cygcheck -f

from the .inst directory, which would get the list of library packages the
DLLs reside in.  It's a short step from there to the setup.hint dependence
list (I plan to use a similar command eventually in the automatic ITP
check script).

Great! That command soup contains just the extra bit of magic that I was looking for to make this a slightly more automated process.
