I now created a seperate mailing list for discussion of enhancements
in cygwin32 support to get questions about such things off this list.
It's running under majordomo on my home server (
which is connected to the Internet using a 28.800 bps modem. Although
this link is very reliable in my experience it's also very slow. As I
poll my ISP twice a day at 16:10 and 3:00 CEST (which are IMHO 14:10
and 3:00 UTC) it certainly won't be the the fastest anyway. ;)
But if demand and number of subsribers grow I could move it to a
machine located in my ISPs backbone with 24h internet access.

Okay, now here's the info on how to subscribe:
