There's nothing to "develop".

Cygwin is just another Unix platform; if someone reports that
something doesn't work on Cygwin, it will get dealt with in the same
way as a report that something doesn't work on Solaris.

Even if the native Windows version obtains the same level of
functionality as the Unix version, some people may still want to use
the Cygwin version.
