cygwin-developers: a by-approval developers list for discussing the
internals of the Cygwin DLL and all components of the "winsup" directory
with the exception of the cinstall directory (see cygwin-apps above).
Discussions of upcoming net releases are also appropriate. Subscription
requests are handled on a case-by-case basis. Only subscribers may
submit email to this list. Please do not join the cygwin-developers
mailing list unless 1) you are thoroughly familiar with the cygwin DLL,
2) you have successfully built the DLL from source, and 3) you intend to
contribute source code to the Cygwin DLL or its utilities.

I thought that your post met the "Discussions of upcoming net releases
are also appropriate" rule but I must have been wrong.  Perhaps stronger
attention to "Heads up before net release" or a different subject would
have made the post clearer as to your intent.  Suggesting that you're
looking for the bug to squash may have also helped.
