Please *wait* before sending cygwin-announce messages

I've noticed a new trend recently with package maintainers sending their
cygwin-announce messages before they have been notified that the package
has been uploaded.

Please don't do that.

Please *do* send your upload announcements here, but just the raw facts,
please, no descriptions of why you are updating or what the new features
are.  Just URLs are all that is required.

IF the package has subdirectores and if you can duplicate the layout of
the release directory where the package resides that would be useful
too.  It means that we can just use wget to download the package

When someone informs you that the package has been updated, *then* send
an announcement to cygwin-announce.  As always make sure that you
include details about how to unsubscribe in your message.
