I would like to contribute, but the current system sucks, to be frank. As far as
I can tell this is the current repo

but then you can also find this

which has about 50 "CVS Root"s. I dont know if these roots are all Cygwin or
what. All of this fails to mention that nowhere will you find a search function,
which is a huge fail. Compare to GitHub, which has

- search multiple repos at same time
- or search individual repo
- issue tracker
- you can go into the source code of a single file and comment on a single line,
  that is powerful stuff. Example
- pull requests
- wiki for each repo
- binary downloads
- commit logs

of which current CVS does not have, or has crappy incarnation. I know this post
may seem rude, but I have good intent. I also would like to see Cygwin improve,
but you have to make it easier for people to do so.
