Yes, your question made me wonder if it wouldn't be nice to have a cygwin-unix-questions mailing list, but then it occurred to me that then we'd have endless and indignant discussions of whether something is cygwin or unix-specific.

The current method of "survival of the fittest" seems to work best - if you can pose your question in an interesting manner, it'll get attention, whether it's a unix question or not.  People scan the available threads for one that interests them and skip over ones that seem boring.

The only thing I'm missing is a nice way to directly reference an entry that I read on the maillist
server so that I get merged into the thread.  As it is, I'm switching to "raw-text", grabbing the
Referenced-Mail (or whatever it's called) and referencing that in my contribution.

Because I use the same Subject line, I seem to get positioned into the correct thread, but not at
the correct place.
