Apologize for my rudeness.

My point here is for Cygwin packages to catch up with upstream releases,
if possible make it as fast as how Archlinux adopts a new upstream
release, so that Cygwin users will benefit from developments done by

I think it's a good idea to keep Cygwin packages in sync with upstream

To achieve it, package maintainers should have a way to know as soon as
a new upstream release is available, such as subscribing to the upstream
mailing list for a new package release announcement.

By doing this, they can make a test package as soon as a new upstream
release is available and release the package after test package has been
free of serious bug.
