cygwin-pkg-maint maintance

Hi Maintainers,
I was looking at the needed maintenance of cygwin-pkg-maint,
crossing the data of x86 setup.ini with cygwin-pkg-maint
and I found 2 main classes of mismatch plus a minor one

1) missing packages.
Package that are in x86 setup.ini but not reported in cygwin-pkg-maint
at any level.
Nor the package, nor the source package and neither the first
subdirectory of x86/release is reported in the file;
I estimated the maintainer from the mailing list to be:

2) packages that are in cygwin-pkg-maint but not in setup.ini (nor x86 or x86_64 ones)

most are OBSOLETE but not clearly defined as such, like
db2, db3.1, .. of Volker
libqhull, liblapack of mine

3) typos
	libgck1-ddoc -> libgck1-doc
	libzziplib-devel -> libzzip-devel

Question before I start to modify cygwin-pkg-maint:

Does still make sense to report all binary packages in
the cygwin-pkg-maint files ?
Should we cluster them at source package or directory level as accepted
by the upload procedure ?

Specially for the dll libraries the name are continuously bumped, and
we will be always behind. At first glance we are missing ~ 200
packages; so roughly 8% of all the binary packages (~ 2700).
The active source packages are ~ 1400 and they change much
less frequently (ITP, ITA, orphanage and obsolescence)
so a better accuracy is possible.
