And of course the discussion and methodology behind the internal
development of the cygwin libraries, issues, and future ideas is
- in true opensource form (NOT) - on a completely closed list,
invite-only, with no public access to any form of archives.

What exactly is the positive purpose behind that?

"cygwin-developers: a by-approval developers list for discussing
the internals of the Cygwin DLL and all components of the
"winsup" directory. Discussions of upcoming net releases are also
appropriate. Subscription requests are handled on a case-by-case
basis. Only subscribers may submit email to this list. Please do not
attempt to join the cygwin-developers mailing list unless 1) you are
thoroughly familiar with the cygwin DLL, 2) you have successfully built
the DLL from source, 3) you contributed at least one patch to the Cygwin
DLL or its utilities, and 4) you intend on being a long-term contributor.
Please do not ask for "read-only" access to this mailing list. You either
qualify or you don't. There is no middle ground."
