I didn't find any documentation stating that Cygwin isn't currently compatible with building, I was wondering if it would be good to add documentation stating this and that it would be an area requiring help.

We don't (can't) document everything we're *not* compatible with, we can only realisticly document what we support.  I thought we did that, but all I can find at the moment is PEP 11, which you are correct, does not list cygwin as a no-longer-supported platform (although we'd like to support it, see the many issues in this tracker about it).

ah I see, hence the *currently* incompatible, there must be some way of tracking areas in need of help without having to use the search, kind of like the way Github uses labels.

Hi, I've created a pull request for pep 11.
