I'm sure that you won't be be but I, for one, won't be very happy when
the people who use your programs conclude that any problems they have,
whether they are packaging, cockpit, or otherwise, should be discussed

I'm glad that you are clarifying things on your web site.  It would be
nice if there was another place where people could get help with your
packages so that we could be assured that, when problems turn up here,
they are likely to be problems with the cygwin dll or the cygwin
distribution rather than standard random end-user complaints about
installation or misconceptions.
