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.

There is a miniscule amount of traffic in the cygwin list about
development and even less traffic in the pretty-much-defunct
cygwin-developers list.

No.  The description in the mailing list is correct.  If there is an
occasional query about cygwin internals it is not a very frequent
occurrence in cygwin-apps.

The description at really is up-to-date.
There is no need to second guess it.
