Is my more technical discussion better put onto the cygwin-patches list

No. The mailing list descriptions really are accurate. If you don't have a patch, then you shouldn't be sending email to cygwin-patches.

Most cygwin development discussion occurs on the main list or on cygwin-apps.
Basically The general rule for cygwin apps appears to be that the first messgage in a thread has to
be about creation of new packages, or discussions about packaging policy. (Also requests for uploads go to that list).
Then the disussion can drift a little to more general cygwin development, but should still be in the context of a specific package.

Also, discussion of the development of setup.exe usually takes place on cygwin-apps, because that is the designated list for discussing bugs in setup.exe
