Please fill out the form at:


The project is cygwin, the approver is cgf@redhat.com.
The email address is the address for any email sent to cygwin.com
or sources.redhat.com.

The ssh identity.pub file should be a v1 not a v2 key.

Once this is done, I will provide you with access to the cygwin web
