Let me clarify. Anyone proposing to add a package to the Cygwin distro
requires two things:
1) show presence in other major distro (e.g. Fedora, Debian, or Ubuntu)
stable release OR 5 positive votes for inclusion.
2) a GTG review from a current Cygwin package maintainer.
The fact that Fedora has some of your prerequisites only helps with the
first point. Cygwin != Linux, so we can't use Fedora's packages. So
somebody needs to build and ITP those prereqs first before this package
can be properly reviewed.
