The way I read his email, he was saying "where is the discussion", not
"there was one and you should have linked to it".

I'll repeat myself.
Until the test suite is run successfully, you have *no real* idea about

Console code is one of the key parts of cygwin, and Xterm emulators
require that code working as well.
