Which version of Error - reproducing the 0.17019 shipped in 64-bit
cygwin, or the latest 0.17022 available upstream?

I guess I should come out and state this:

I have no vested interest in maintaining the perl-Error package.  It is
my only 'inherit perl' package, and I originally packaged as a
pre-requisite of being able to package git; but now that someone else is
planning on adopting git (although the progress on that front has been
glacially slow), I'm more than willing to put perl-Error up for adoption
for anyone else to manage, that is more likely to know how to resolve
the issues that I ran into.  Is this something you'd like to adopt?
