I would like to adopt sqlite3. I've packaged the latest release.

I don't think the package is in need of adoption.  Warren Young is still
around and active, AFAICT.

Jan has been the driving force behind fixing the problems that prevented a simple update from SQLite 3.7.x to 3.8 on Cygwin. (3.8 is a big upstream release, and they broke a lot of things on Cygwin, since it isn't a primary deployment platform for them.)

The only reason I adopted this package in the first place is that the previous maintainer disappeared, and it was about to be removed from the distribution. I just stepped in to rescue it. I have never actually *used* SQLite on Cygwin, other than testing; Cygwin SQLite has never been my "itch."

I expect Jan to be a better SQLite package adoptive parent than I was.

Via private email and on the SQLite list, I've been explaining the whys and wherefores of the current Cygwin SQLite package to Jan and others. I don't intend to disappear entirely from the SQLite world, but I think most of the knowledge transfer has already happened.
