Looking at it seems not to be an OSD compatible license:
1. Free Redistribution

The license shall not restrict any party from selling or giving away the software as a component of an aggregate software distribution containing programs from several different sources. The license shall not require a royalty or other fee for such sale.

So we have no exemption from the GPL for the cygwin stub in the exe files.

I think we should add a comment on the packaging page that only OSD compatible packages can become part of the cygwin distribution.
