that post is deceptive.

I used [ANNOUNCEMENT] simply because I saw the tag on other announcements.

Some people might have filters based on this exact subject line tag;
inventing a different, similar tag would evade those filters, possibly
to someone's chagrin.

I apologize to people who were curious about this, yet then disappointed
to discover that it's something other than a program that they can just
install under Cygwin and then use. Also, sorry if I broke any automated
process which relies on these specially formatted subject lines matching
official packages.

I will remember to refrain from using the tag in the future.
(which could easily be well over a year from now; whenever is the next
time I sync up with Cygwin mainline.)
