Programming Questions

How do I contribute a package?

If you are willing to be a package maintainer, great. We urgently need
volunteers to prepare and maintain packages, because the priority of the
Cygwin Team is
Cygwin itself. 

There will be a separate web page where all the details are documented,
but this is not prepared yet. Meanwhile, pore through the cygwin-apps
mailing archives
(start at http://cygwin.com/lists.html), and subscribe. Charles Wilson
posted a short recipe of what's involved, using texinfo as an example,
at
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-apps/2000-11/msg00055.html. This should give
you an idea of what is required. 

You should announce your intentions to the general cygwin list, in case
others were thinking the same thing.

Since there isn't yet a web page explaining this, and I can't seem to
google to a sample.  Can some kind soul explain to me the proper means
to upload a package?

Thanks,
Earnie.
