I would *love* to do that, but I have a WIBGI (Wouldn't It Be Great If
WIBGI the testsuite for Cygwin (the one in the winsup subdirectory) would
be available as a separate package via Setup (under the experimental
packages, of course) That would make it a lot easier for us folks willing
to help to .. help! :)
Any time you launch a "Please try the snapshot - it might become the next
version" I would be more than willing to run the testsuite against the
snapshot and report any regressions (and investigate them if need be).
My problem is that I don't have (and can't get) a copyright assignment, so

To limit trafic to the mailing list, if you like this idea, I would

output of the testsuite - so this list doesn't get flooded with reports.
