I'm not going to remove anything until this is settled.

It's just sad that almost every time we need a package maintainer, it's
Yaakov who has to step up.  Yaakov is an excellent package maintainer
but there's only so much a single person can do and Yaakov already
maintains hundreds of packages.

If there's anybody here who would like to contribute to this project,
please give the idea to maintain a Cygwin package a whirl.  Especially
taking over maintainership of an orphaned package would be very helpful
for the community as a whole.

For a start, see http://cygwin.com/setup.html and the "ORPHANED" packages
in the text file http://cygwin.com/cygwin-pkg-maint
