This is now enabled for all maintainers.

To summarize, the following tokens are recognized in the SCALLYWAG 
variable set in the .cygport file:

nobuild: Disables building packages.

notest: Disables running 'cygport test'

deploy: For the master branch, after a successful build, the built 
packages are handed-off to calm, the package uploader.

Note that currently, these packages are built using 'cygport
all-test', and so will always be marked as test.c
