I don't know of a general forum like this.  That's not to say that there
isn't something out there.  If not, I'd say look at the forums for the
packages that interest you.  Most likely, others that have used Cygwin to
build these packages have communicated with the maintainers directly.
There's also the "cygwin" list archives and even the "cygwin-apps" list
archives.  The former would require some intelligent (or persistent/lucky?)
searching.  The latter may be closer to what you're looking for though it
also contains discussions about "setup.exe".  In addition the packages
discussed there are limited (by the list's charter) to those that are part
of Cygwin.  Other discussions are off-topic.
