Re: OpenSSH Package Distribution Architecture Mismatch

I noticed an anomaly within both 32bit and 64bit distributions of
OpenSSH.   The package maintainer inadvertently placed the architectures in
their opposition. At 1st glance I thought I had clicked the wrong icon
thinking I was using 64bit within 32bit's space, and vice-versa.

The latest OpenSSH package from both 32 and 64 bit resources displays
the  following:

FROM 32bit Cygwin (C:\cygwin)
TARGET: C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico -

$ cygcheck -c openssh

I assume you're basing your conclusion on the above information.

In conclusion: 32bit OpenSSH is in Cygwin64, and 64bit OpenSSH is in Cygwin32.

You're mistaken.  SysWOW64 is what 64-bit Windows uses to run 32-bit
executables.  If you 'ldd' other Cygwin 32-bit executables, you'll see the
same thing.  This is what's expected for any 32-bit Windows executable
