Anyone willing to maintain a cygwin bugs database

I have always resisted the idea of a cygwin bug database because the
cygwin user base is basically so clueless.  The theory is that if we
opened up a bug database it would be filled with people reporting that
setup.exe isn't resizeable or saying "I need help cygwin, gcc command
not found says".

However, I can see some benefit in pointing to official bugzilla URLs
when someone reports a problem and possibly referring to closed bugzilla
ids in cygwin releases.

So, I was wondering if anyone wanted to volunteer to police a cygwin
database?  Ideally, this would be done by one of the many lurkers in
this mailing list rather than people who are already active.  I'd hate
to dilute people's efforts on other fronts since I think this could
require some regular and concentrated effort.

Any volunteers?
