Dario Alcocer was the last person to announce rpm so, AFAICT, he was the
rpm maintainer. I don't see any announcements from Nicholas in
cygwin-announce about rpm.
And, as far as that's concerned, I don't see any popt announcements at all
from Nicholas in cygwin-announce.
So, anyway, I think I will take on the popt package. It makes sense for
the rpm maintainer to be the popt maintainer and I'm hoping to update
rpm sometime soon.
