  I would definitely use it, the same way I currently use the GCC bug tracker:
I'd set up a whine email reminder, so that I didn't have to exert any extra
effort or feel that any extra burden was imposed on me, I'd just hear about
the new bug reports that I was interested in anyway.  I'd also want to be the
default Cc for bugs in my area, but given that, I'm not persuaded by the "this
is extra effort on the recipient's part" argument; it's just more emails, that
you can equally easily filter into the same email folder as the rest of your
mails from the main cygwin list if that's how you want to handle it.

  (Also, I'd be utterly brutal about RESO INVALID anything that I reckoned was
a support request rather than an actual bug.)
