Sorry, it was not obvious to me that this was *NOT* an official announcement,
Cygnal is *NOT* a Cygwin package,
and should *NOT* have been posted with that subject prefix:
that post is deceptive.

Could we possibly have sourceware filter or bounce announcement posts with that
subject prefix, unless they come from the current maintainer(s), via the
cygwin-announce list, or the package update process, or have posts signed with a
key or cert, whichever is doable and secure?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
