Re: [ACTION REQUIRED] ARCH=noarch uploads with cygport 0.22.0

Package Maintainers,

cygport 0.22.0 is on its way to the mirrors.  With this release, and
thanks to Jon Turney's continuing work on calm (the replacement for
upset which generates setup.ini), packages marked ARCH=noarch will be
uploaded once under the /noarch/release hierarchy instead of into each
of /x86/release and /x86_64/release.  This change is intended to save
disk space and bandwidth for both sourceware and our mirrors.

A package should be marked ARCH=noarch IF AND ONLY IF *all*
subpackages thereof do not contain anything compiled with the *native*
gcc, and the file contents are (or can be) 100% identical for x86 and
x86_64. Examples include, but are not limited to, packages which
contain only:

* documentation;
* scripts;
* fonts;
* icon themes;
* other runtime data;
* C/C++ headers without a library;
* libraries for cross-compiler toolchains.
* pure Lua/Perl/Python/Ruby/Tcl modules without C/C++ bindings.
I wonder why this list or this action does not include all the source
packages, which might even save more disk space than all the others
