I hope you mean the documentation sources.  I'm not fluent in spanish
and converting my english comments in the Cygwin sources to spanish
would left me a bit puzzled :)

The documentation is written by the developers.  There's no doc team nor
a translation team, given that we have only a tiny number of contributors
to the Cygwin package codebase.  If you're interested in providing a
spanish translation of the docs or the FAQs, we can certainly arrange a
side project for translations in CVS, and the necessary web space to
publish them.

If you're interested, we could discuss the howto in the cygwin-apps
mailing list.

Btw., the same goes for anybody who would like to provide translations
in any other language, naturally.  I would just like to ask that you
make sure you mean that seriously and don't drop off right at the next
