But this is all Cygwin DLL version.  Nothing of that is related to
any kind of distro version number.  All other packages have their
own, entirely disconnected rolling release cycle.

If you like you can provide an os-release package with this file.
However, it would be kind of static:

  NAME=Cygwin
  VERSION="42"
  ID=cygwin
  VERSION_ID=42
  PRETTY_NAME="Cygwin"
  HOME_URL="https://cygwin.com/";
  SUPPORT_URL="https://cygwin.com/";
