You can check this yourself using the Cygwin Package Search facility
on http://cygwin.com/packages/

However, the .1 man pages are not really important and are in the
responsibility of the respective package.  For instance, GNU ed
does simply not have a man page, only an info page.  That's ok.

Yaakov, the vim package always came with a vi.1 symlink pointing to the
vim.1 man page, in the old days ;).
Can you re-add this when packaging the next version of vim at one
