Yaakov Selkowitz is another Red Hat engineer working on the Cygwin project.
He's the guy behind the current build and packaging system and maintains by far the most packages in the Cygwin distribution.
Keep in mind that Cygwin can only do as much as the underlying OS supports.
Because of this, Cygwin will behave differently, and exhibit different limitations, on the various versions of Windows.
Cygwin allows easy porting of many Unix programs without the need for extensive changes to the source code.
This includes configuring and building most of the available GNU or BSD software, including the packages included with the Cygwin distribution themselves.You can find documentation for the individual GNU tools typically as man pages or info pages as part of the Cygwin net distribution. The goal of such freedom is that the people who use a given piece of software should be able to change it to fit their needs, learn from it, share it with their friends, etc.The GPL or LGPL licenses allows you those freedoms, so it is free software.The setup program will handle the task of updating the packages on your system to the latest version.For more information about using Cygwin's Corinna Vinschen is the current project lead. Corinna is responsible for the Cygwin library and maintains a couple of packages, for instance Open SSH, Open SSL, and a lot more.Please note that all of us working on Cygwin try to be as responsive as possible and deal with patches and questions as we get them, but realistically we don't have time to answer all of the email that is sent to the main mailing list. You can pick and choose the packages you wish to install, and update them individually.
