You don't need to be on the Cygwin developers list to create patches
for Cygwin or play around with the code.  Patches can be submitted either
to cygwin-patches (preferred) or this list (not so much but tolerated).
You should target cygwin-patches for something like what you're interested
in doing.

Understood.  But the Cygwin developers list isn't just about patches.
There's really no need for you to be on that list to do what you have
talked about.
