Ah.  Should have read further.  This is what I wanted to see, actually.

I think the name "setup.html" may be a little misleading, though.  Shouldn't
it be "cygwin-apps.html" or something now?

Nice stuff, by the way.  We've needed something like this for a long time.

One thing, though.  I haven't been giving new accounts for new packages.
I don't like the idea of a slowly increasing number of people with full
access to sources.redhat.com, so I've just been doing the package updates
myself.

What "would be nice" and what I've asked for before is some kine of nifty
upload page that did this automatically and allowed you to specify a
cygwin-announce message as well.  Or, a command-line utility for doing
this.

The last time I asked about this somebody said "Use SourceForge software".
I think that would be a overkill for this requirement, though.
