Is there a reason?  Applying a patch shouldn't have involve starting
an editor.

Umm, you need to distinguish between reporting a bug (which should be done
here) and submitting a patch (which should be done on cygwin-patches).
Requiring subscription probably filters out a lot of stuff that shouldn't
be on that list, and is a reasonable request.  Is there a reason you
couldn't subscribe, send, and unsubscribe?
