Please configure your mailer to not quote raw e-mail addresses in your
replies -- let's not feed the spam harvesters.
Also, according to the announcement
(<http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2003-05/msg00308.html>), questions and
comments should go to this list, and not directly to the maintainer. I'm
sure Dario reads this list[*], so he'll probably reply at some point or
another. That's why I said "wait until" he releases the package, not
"contact him and find out when". Cygwin is a volunteer project, done by
people in their (usually scarce) spare time.
[*] You might make it easier for him to notice your message by putting
something like "[Attn: Dario Alcocer]", or, better yet, "[Attn: rpm
maintainer]", in the subject.
