I have a quick suggested addition to the FAQ: 

FAQ #nnnn: 

Q: How do I determine the packages and version numbers I have installed
on my system? 

A: Use the "cygcheck -c" option. This lists package names and versions
    as text. 

Sample output (abbreviated): 

$ cygcheck -c
Cygwin Package Information

ash                 20020731-1
autoconf            2.54-1
