How does one check who the maintainer of a package is; e.g. to make
sure it is not oneself?
I compiled up the initial version of Window Maker, and provided a Cygwin
patch to the WM developers to fix the problem of it crashing if you
restarted after saving the workspace (which I believe has been
incorporated into the main WM trunk), but someone else was good enough
to put together the actual package for Cygwin.
Hence my wondering.
