You don't have to ask developers for patches. You can see the changes
either in CVS <http://cygwin.com/cvs.html> or, when a snapshot is
released, on the snapshot pages.
If you don't see it in CVS, then it is still being worked on and asking
people for a work in progress and you don't want a work in progress.
