I guess it would be up to the package maintainer to suggest what the
appropriate mail address would be.  I'm not sure that I'd be happy
seeing cygwin users cropping up in

However, I think that in the majority of cases cygwin@cygwin is the
correct place to post bugs.  It's like in the gcc mailing list when
someone reports a problem with gcc 2.96.47 from Red Hat 7.2.  The
response is always "Talk to Red Hat".
