Dear maintainers,

Cygscript is an utility program allowing to register file types to be
executed in Cygwin when double clicked from File Explorer or when a file
is dragged and dropped to a registered file type.

Any file type can be registered. Scripts are executed with bash in
MinTTY terminal. Windows paths passed as arguments (eg. when dragged and
dropped) are automatically detected and translated to POSIX paths.
Please see the github page for further details.

This application is not included in any other distro, so i reckon a vote
must be first passed.

I am the sole developer and maintainer of the project at the moment.
