Are you volunteering? By all means, welcome aboard!

I'd like to and if you haven't noticed -- i'am trying... ;-)

Because the Cygwin build works pretty well when your environment is
Cygwin. And some of us, to put it mildly, wouldn't touch that crap
again if it were the last working environment on the surface of the
Earth. I certainly don't plan to spend a second making Emacs work
better with Cygwin (tought of course I have nothing against other
people doing it; I'm not an anti-Cygwin zealot).

And that is why i also prefer native build of Emacs (and think, that it should be less buggy). I suppose, that making it work better with Cygwin (like other external apps) would just make it better. In the sources there are already much (well, not so little) of the cygwin related stuff, so if it ain't going to be dropped, then why it couldn't/shouldn't be improved?


Same question -- why when bother with w32 development at all?

Seems like there's a sizable user base of non-Cygwin users of Emacs on
Windows. And some of us like to work on Emacs development.

That question implied, that it's worth to improve w32.
