Please look at the Contributing link at .  If you
can't fill out an assignment form, the work cannot be integrated with
Cygwin.  It's that simple.

It's not my decision but I have to enforce it.

I have my famous "mixed feelings" about including the cygipc package as
a downloadable option for cygwin.  If people are accustomed to thinking
that it is part of cygwin, I think that the incentive for writing our
own daemon is going to be much less.  And, we really do need our own
daemon for doing a lot of things.

So, my feeling is that cygipc should not be included by default.
However, I am willing to be swayed in this decision if the other
developers think that it really would be a good idea to include it.  To
be clear -- we can't release it as part of cygwin itself but we could
release it as a separate package.
