While a number of maintainers keep their cygwin packaging under some
sort of version control, there is currently no central collection of
To remedy this lack, using the same ssh key you use for sftp package
upload, package maintainers can now also push to git repositories, like so:
git push firstname.lastname@example.org:/git/cygwin-packages/<packagename>
where <packagename> is a package name you are listed as a maintainer for
These repositories are lazily created on the first push.

scripts, patches, and other packaging files, and to prevent the
accidental committing of upstream archives, pushes containing large
binary files will be rejected.
These repositories are viewable via gitweb at
https://cygwin.com/git-cygwin-packages/ (URL may be subject to change),
and should be cloneable via anonymous git/http with the URLs shown there.
Please give this a test, if possible, and report any problems here.
