Dear developers of cygwin,
our group "singular-team", which is responsible for the singular
computer algebra system, wants to maintain a cygwin package of this system.
I would be the maintainer, as I am responsible for the windows port.

The setup.hint file:
sdesc: "A computer algebra system for polynomial calculations"
ldesc: "SINGULAR is a Computer Algebra system for polynomial
computations in commutative algebra, algebraic geometry, and singularity
theory. SINGULAR's main computational objects are ideals and modules
over a large variety of baserings. The baserings are polynomial rings
over a field (e.g., finite fields, the rationals, floats, algebraic
extensions, transcendental extensions), or localizations thereof, or
quotient rings with respect to an ideal. SINGULAR features fast and
general implementations for computing Groebner and standard bases,
including e.g. Buchberger's algorithm and Mora's Tangent Cone algorithm.
Furthermore, it provides polynomial factorizations, resultant,
characteristic set and gcd computations, syzygy and free-resolution
computations, and many more related functionalities. Based on an
easy-to-use interactive shell and a C-like programming language,
SINGULAR's internal functionality is augmented and user-extendible by
libraries written in the SINGULAR programming language. A general and
efficient implementation of communication links allows SINGULAR to make
its functionality available to other programs."
