There was a long thread about how to delete packages in cygwin-apps.
It also went into November.

Guess I need to add a FAQ.
Q) Why aren't my files being transferred to the release area? I've waited
several days and don't see any movement.
A) The package updater runs every 10 minutes so, if you don't see any movement
in, e.g., 20 minutes, then your package is not going to be updated.
The main reason that this could happen is if you uploaded a package that
you are not actually responsible for. The updater only knows what you
are responsible for based on http://cygwin.com/cygwin-pkg-maint so if
you aren't listed as an owner there your packages won't be updated.
I added you as the owner for "unison" and "unison2.45".
