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.

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."
