Could I get some from authority to address this issue?

I noticed that when download the latest Cygwin distro the other day into 
a new PC, the "cal" package was nolonger included in any packages.  
However during the entire Beta test of Cygwin, it was there.  Why was 
there a package removal a f t e r  beta testing.  It appears to be a 
disconnect for me.  It would appears to me that for a new release to be 
made that a freeze date be observed in which major changes (command 
removal) would not be introduced.  Only fixes, omissions, and upgrades 
would be allowed.

Maybe I'm being to paranoid about this.  But it would sound logical that 
a freeze date would mean this.  Does it??
It appears that another command also disappeared but after a 14-week 
stay in a nursing I'm clueless as to what it was.
