I'm not making a feature request but rather some future discussion ideas.
We all seem to remember sub-version numbers like:
There is some benefits in using a consistant numbering scheme. When I
use the uname command, I don't care what date my dll was created. I
would like for uname to use the same format as we all talk about. Would
it be possible to get uname to report the full version with
sub-version? No more dates... Without this feature, Im' going thru
convuolutions to extract the full version and sub versions.
I like to be able to quickly view this information in the Windows
banner/title area when running multiple instatnces of the OS.

I just uploaded a new Cygwin 1.7 test release, 1.7.0-59.
Just a bugfix update.
What's new in contrast to 1.7.0-58
- Fix a bug in wcsncpy where the function call wcsncpy (dest, src, n)
could end up copying n+1 characters to dest.
- The getsockname/getpeername patches added to -58 didn't return the
correct length for unbound AF_LOCAL sockets (3 instead of 2).
- Fix a bug in readdir which could lead to incorrect inode numbers
for "." and ".." entries on some remote filesystems (ext3 over
NFS for instance).
- Fix a bug in readdir which could result in wrong inode numbers on remote
NFS filesystems. Also works around a bug in the Windows 7 NFS client.
- Fix popen problems with standard handles
- Q: How do I know that I'm running Cygwin 1.7.0-59?
A: The `uname -v' command prints "2009-08-18 18:42"
