I did test both the 32 and 64 bit version, but not with the -D flag,
just interactively. Thanks for pointing out that gap. I only had a
chance to look briefly at the failure, but it occurs on 2.0.5 32 and
64-bit builds, as well as the existing 2.0.4 32-bit package. Since it's
strictly not a regression, I'd push for it not holding up the update if
everything else work, but is still be a nice to have that I'll look at.

fair enough, just highlight the problem in the announcement.

You are the new maintainer

As another packaging question, I get that cygport is a build helper not
package management, but is there an easy way to install a resulting
binary package on a local system that ties in with the setup.exe
packaging tracking? I'd like to be able to actually test packages in
deployed state with and without the debug information present, and be
able to subsequently remove it as well, for which tar xfJ doesn't do
such a hot job.

build a local site and use genini to build the setup.ini

For example I use a structure like

and a script like
rm x86/setup.ini x86_64/setup.ini

genini --recursive x86_64 > x86_64/setup.ini
bzip2 -k -c x86_64/setup.ini > x86_64/setup.bz2

genini --recursive x86 > x86/setup.ini
bzip2 -k -c x86/setup.ini > x86/setup.bz2

see "setup-x86.exe --help"
how to install locally from your local site.
