Discussion of cygwin DLL development is not handled in cygwin-apps. It
is mainly discussed on irc between Corinna and me. If someone reports a
problem porting an application in cygwin-apps then it is possible that
Corinna or I might make a change but that is true of any mailing list
which Corinna or I read.

occasional query about cygwin internals it is not a very frequent
occurrence in cygwin-apps.
