That's what http://cygwin.com/setup.html and this mailing list is for.

If the sources change, you should always upload a new complete package
set so that the package numbering scheme corresponds with the source
package the binary packages have been created from. This means, you
should also prepare a new singular-icon-3.0.0-2 package.
As for the singular-surf package, I don't know, it has it's own
source package, apparently. However, you should also prepare a
new source and binary package set, since I just found that the
singular-surf source package on sourceware is broken. Its size is
0 bytes, that can't be right.
