Well, it has gcc-2.95 listed in the title:

"Can I use Cygwin Setup to get old versions of packages (like gcc-2.95)?"

Did you want a 'Where is gcc-2.95?' I figured making a
generic entry (the whole entry is new) that will show up
near the top would be more likely read than a specific one
toward the bottom with the Questions and Answers.

Of course, we just got a question about how to find the
Cygwin version, which is FAQ #5, so maybe toward the top
doesn't help...

This is a good idea, but isn't it 'aaaspam@cygwin.com' that gets you
