Let me see if I am reading this correctly:
When sending a message to cygwin-announce, it should not contain any
information about the motivation for the update (e.g. sync with upstream
or Cygwin-specific bug fix), nor should it contain a list of features
and/or bug fixes?
When you say "just URLs are required", did you mean to say "if the
information is available on the web (e.g. on an upstream project web
page), just include a URL instead of copying and pasting"? I can agree
with that, that would cut out a lot of information that is available
But the lack of a description of the motivation for the update seems a
little odd, that information is simply not available elsewhere.
Did I misread the request?
