We don't do a release, we just have a test release area. It would be
very helpful for updating during the test phase if it would work just
like the real thing. Manual update of so many packages is laborious.
So, please, if it's not too much work, it would be really nice if you
could setup an upset cron job for the release area under
ftp://cygwin.com/pub/64bit/release to help our testing efforts.

I didn't know Yaakov is a random person.
