Hi all,

after six weeks of absence I scanned the cygwin-apps list now and I'm
wondering how many ITPs, which didn't make it into a package so far,
are still seriously backed by their potential maintainer.  There was
a certain kind of stagnancy for a lot of packages after the first
few followup mails have been sent.  Sometimes no followup mails at
all have been sent, but there was no further live-sign of the potential
maintainer either.

So, here's what we do: All still open ITPs as of today are canceled.

All potential maintainers still seriously considering to get their
package into the distro, please resend your ITP and follow these simple

- Send your ITP as a new thread, don't reply to this mail, nor to
  your former ITP.

- Add URLs to your setup.hint file, to the binary and source packages
  as usual, add the content of your setup.hint file inline as usual.

- Add the number of all votes and/or GTG reports you got so far.

- Make it a short email.  Just enough for folks to consider voting
  and, hopefully, GTGing.
