No.  I'd like someone who isn't intent on shooting themselves in
the foot in every other message to the cygwin mailing lists.

If you want to support the package then why were you asking for
someone else to do it?  Just a temporary lapse?

And, where was this?  I don't see anything obvious in the archives.

Given the amount of meta discussion you insisted on having about this
package (the "I don't want to read cygwin-apps via email" and the
"setup.hint should support an include" and the "hey! There are other
packages without a cygwin README!" and finally "can someone else
maintain this?") and the fact that AFAICT there has only been one vote
for it, my confidence level is still pretty low.

So, *does* someone else want to maintain it?  Or at least vote for it?
When I scan for "vote" in this thread, I only see Lapo responding.
