I think everything's good to go!  CVS imports are working fine, I've
used the build myself briefly (and a previous almost-identical build for
a while), and the test suites are almost all passing*.

I'm not sure what the process is for adopting somebody else's package;
the "Submitting a new package" instructions don't seem to apply since
it's not a new package, but I don't yet have upload rights to just go
ahead and do it.

The packages and setup.hint files are all ready to use and/or upload
from  Before I can go ahead and
release, I think I need to be added to cygwin-pkg-maint so I can send in
an SSH key, and I possibly need a GTG from another maintainer.


* I've run all the tests I reasonably can and ironed out all the
failures and unexpected skips except for a binary grep test that
inexplicably passes, a CVS test that fails on 32-bit due to what looks
like a bug in the cvs executable, and some rare 64-bit hangs when
interacting with remotes that are sad but I don't believe should block
the release.
