Security Vulnerabilities

I'm trying to use cygwin at work, but the network administrator can't 
approve it unless I can verify that the source code contains no obvious 
signs of malicious code, back doors, Trojans, etc.  I am fully confident 
that these kinds of things would not be found in an open-source project 
(because it would be so obvious), but I'm not able to analyze the source 
code myself.  The advantages of using cygwin for me at work are huge, but 
I'm stuck unless someone can point me in the right direction.  Is anyone 
aware of a good way for me to prove that cygwin is secure to my network 
admin?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks,
