As needed.
If you are not changing the upstream source just bump the cygwin revision

Q2: Does the location hosting a test build for external review have to
be the same location used to host final builds?

Test build are reviewed.
Final package are uploaded by each maintainer on

Q3: What kind of external access is typically used for hosting final
builds?  I've run a micro-ISP that allowed on-request FTP access, by IP

Does HTTP and/or HTTPS access need to be provided?

Detailed suggestions for that last question would be welcomed.  I'd like
