RE: Where can I find the official cygwin openssh documentation?

Is this something that would change if someone were to volunteer to
curate and maintain the documentation?  I'm not volunteering, at least
until I've a better idea of the commitment involved, but is this a case
of "we don't want that documentation on the website" or simply SHTDI?

Remember that Google is "helpful" and returns results it thinks *you*
will find useful based on Google's profile of you; the results you get
may be different to the results anyone else gets.

If I suppress my cookies, my top results for that search are mailing
list posts from 2003 and 2005 (the older of which references
/usr/doc/Cygwin/openssh-3.6.1p1-2.README, which no longer exists), the
Cygwin home page (not much use), then a whole bunch of unofficial
how-tos.  I don't find the Cygwin FAQ until half-way down the second
page of results; if I wasn't looking for it explicitly, I'd personally
have given up long before then to play around with the unofficial
