The reason cygwin-developers exists was to help focus the discussion to the
Cygwin POSIX library only and the libraries needed to support it.  I don't
really think that this should change.

Perhaps a cygwin-packages would be more beneficial for the porting of tools
discussions between maintainers of packages.  I would think that this would
require some formal method of "this person is maintaining the cygwin port for
this package" database and all modifications would then be approved by that

BTW: I don't think that discussions of a netrelease should be considered
off-topic for cygwin-developers until cygwin-packages is created; but,
afterward that discussion should happen there.
