It's probably only polite for /someone/ on the list to reply, although 
in fairness I'm probably not the most qualified person to do so. You may 
be aware that Cygwin package maintainers are mostly volunteers who have 
to juggle real life (jobs, families, etc.) with Open Source work. The 
bulk of Cygwin packages are maintained by a surprisingly small number of 
individuals, and sometimes real life demands mean that there is little 
time to review new contributions. That's not to say that new packages 
aren't wanted (they are), it's just that occasionally there is no-one 
with sufficient time to undertake a review. 'alure' isn't too big, but 
any package the size of 'gambas3' is going to take quite some time to 
pick through.

The other problem with 'alure' is one of scope: I'm not sure how many 
maintainers are interested or familiar with sound on Cygwin. Yaakov or 
Marco would probably have the best knowledge to perform a review, but it 
depends on their availability. It's certainly a couple of years since I 
last dabbled with sound on Cygwin.
