One of the problems with signing up maintainers is that it is a somewhat
time consuming process.  It requires setting up ssh/cvs on your machine,
filling out a form, and getting sysadmins involved.  We're going to have
to automate this process.

However, I have privately approached a few people about being package
maintainers when I see someone showing an interest on the cygwin or
cygwin-developers mailing list.  I have a couple people in various stages
of setup now.  When they seem to be ready to go, I'll be announcing their
new roles.

I have asked for a new "cygwin-apps" mailing list to be set up so that
this kind of thing can be discussed there.  For now, it will be handled
the same way as cygwin-developers with each subscription requiring
approval and only subscribers capable of posting.
