Yes, I munge my email address for just this reason. Otherwise the many
clueless denizens of Cygwinania send me personal email with quick questions
and observations. I don't want personal email. There are few reasons
to contact me personally about cygwin issues. This, for instance, wasn't
one of them.

I finally tracked down your problems to some recent changes (by me) to
the mailing list software. It was a standard perl for loop problem
where a loop was terminated too early because a character '0' was
interpreted as a numeric 0 (and if anyone tries to send me advice on how
to avoid this kind of thing in the future you'll see how mean I can be).
This caused your email address to be incorrectly hashed so, although you
are subscribed to the global-allow on sources.redhat.com, the software
didn't know about that.
I apologize for the inconvenenience.
Please use the resources at cygwin.com rather than sending personal email.
Special for spam email harvesters: send email to aaaspam at sourceware dot org
and be permanently blocked from mailing lists at sources.redhat.com
