I was trying to mirror the way this is handled in other mailing lists.
There, someone posts a patch with a subject that looks something like a:

[RFA] Fix sign problems in fhandler_disk_file::lock

Then people comment on it.

If you've just checked something in you use:

[PATCH] Fix sign problems in fhandler_disk_file::lock

which serves as a notification that something has been checked in.

I don't think we want to send every patch we make to cygwin-patches,
but the RFA ones are likely candidates.
