Sorry.  That's not how it works.

If you have patches to provide, check out the cygwin web page.  Click on
the "Contributing" link.

If you really are thinking about providing a modified version of the cygwin
DLL with ksh, then I hope you think again.  It's a very bad idea.

However, if you insist, I hope that you'll have a separate mailing list
available for support.  We definitely won't be supporting it here.

Hmm.  How odd.

I assume that I have to spell this out:  Please reply to the mailing list.
That's how most free software projects get patches into the code base.

If you have questions, want to report bugs, or submit patches, the cygwin
mailing list is the place to do this.  It's sort of a shame that you weren't
doing that all along, in fact.
