Why not make it a setup flag? Make a nasty little pop-up box pop up when you
install an orphaned package - something like "The package ... is up for
adoption! Please take a look at http://cygwin.com/setup.html to see how you
can help out!"
Perhaps add a new category "orphaned" as well, listing all orphaned packages
and offering to download the source by default..
