Hmm, who decides (and how) what counts as a Linux distro?

Parted Magic is a live disk/USB that contains a variety of system
recovery tools, but is actively maintained and has a changelog and
quality assurance etc so I suppose it could be included in the
definition of a Linux distro?

Either way, could anyone provide some insight as to whether bundling the
Cygwin DLL would allow Cygwin programs to access the virtual /dev and
/cygdrive paths? I have this all ready to be released for Windows, so
one way or another I'll need to make a bundle anyway for convenience.
It'd be great if it could make it into the official repos but I first
submitted this ITP around a month ago so I don't have high hopes as of
this point.

I will be happy to work on improving device detection/discovery in
Cygwin regardless, as and when time permits.
