That looks ok.

These days, I don't spend a lot of time trying to parse the message for
accuracy.  I normally just approve the message if it isn't spam and it
isn't a message from some hapless user who thinks cygwin-announce is
the place to send questions.

A couple of hints:

If you can, you might want to obfuscate your From address so that people
won't contact you personally.  We used to use as the
 From address but that's blocked since spammers seem to insist on using

Please include the unsubscribe information from, e.g.,

at the bottom of your message.  You could include info from the rest of
this message if you were so inclined, too, but that's not a requirement.
