i.e., it does not say that you should build the package first.  It says
that you should propose becoming a package maintainer.  It makes sense
to ask first because, my veto not withstanding, there is no guarantee
that you will get enough votes for the package to be included in the
cygwin distribution.  It's not a rubber stamp.
