Well, I'm willing to give it a try at least.  I know nothing about Cygwin
packaging, but I have experience building on Windows.  My project
(VirtualGL) needs Cygwin/X because of its support of the MIT-SHM extension,
and we have access to plenty of build machines.

Is there a spec for which files go in which packages, etc.?  Any other
advice to get started, or should I just start downloading and tinkering?

I assume that part of the duties are to also feed back patches into the
master repository to fix the Cygwin build, etc.
