I think it's a stupid idea.  The idea of a bunch of ignorant people
asking each other how to do things that only marginally relate to cygwin
is certainly not a newsgroup that I want be anywhere near.  However, my
opinion doesn't really matter.  Go ahead, create a mailing list.  I
won't be reading it.  Maybe somebody clueful will join.

At least you won't have to deal with me saying that things are off-topic.
At least until the first time that someone cross-posts a "how does bash
work" message between the two lists.
