This release note has caused some confusion. This is simply a quote
from the upstream release notes; the "I" in this context is Joey Hess,
the long-time owner and maintainer of the upstream project. On the
off-chance this comes up again, I'll try to be clearer that I'm just
quoting someone else's release notes rather than providing any
personal commentary. (And also remember to double-check the later
boilerplate for other quotes that need updating, for anyone who
spotted the later contradiction...)

Several people have emailed me off-list about this. Per, please don't do this. If you want to
talk about moreutils (or anything else) on Cygwin, you should be
emailing the Cygwin mailing lists. If you want to offer to take over
responsibility for the overall moreutils project, you should be
contacting the upstream maintainers directly.
