Sadly, the time has come for me to step back from being a Cygwin package
maintainer. I'm keen to take on a new project, and I need to free up
some time in what is already a fairly hectic life! This has meant some
difficult decisions about letting some things go in order to free up the
time needed, and my work as a Cygwin package maintainer is one of the
things I need to set aside.
So with immediate effect, all of my packages are available for adoption.
cygwin-pkg-maint has been updated accordingly.
All are (more or less) up-to-date. Corinna has asked that I stay on the
list for a while to help any prospective maintainer in adopting one or
more of my packages, so I will remain subscribed to 'cygwin' and
'cygwin-apps' for at least a fortnight.
I've been a Cygwin package maintainer for nearly six years, and I've
learned a lot in my time here. Special thanks to Corinna for leading the
programme, and to Yaakov for somehow managing to maintain a ridiculous
number of packages. Cygwin has made a big difference to so many users
over the years. I know the work done here is genuinely appreciated by
the community, and I wish the programme every success in the future.
Thank you very much for your contributions over the years, and for being
willing to help make a smooth transition. Much success in your future
Andrew, could you please polish a gold watch in honour of David's
