See also:


but ignore anything that does not jive with cygport doing most of the grunt work
for you:

	$ cygport package.cygport download all test upload announce

but you might want to run the latter two separately after manually installing
and using the packages under Cygwin on your system.

You can also check package availability easily on https://pkgs.org/:

	$ cygstart https://pkgs.org/download/git-crypt

shows Alt Linux, Arch Linux, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, OpenSuSE, Ubuntu.

You also have to build on x86 and provide public links to the package.cygport,
source package-ver-1-src.tar.xz, x86 and x86_64 binary package-ver-1.hint,
package-ver-1.tar.xz, x86 and x86_64 debuginfo package-debuginfo-ver-1.hint and
package-debuginfo-ver-1.tar.xz files, from the build package-ver-1.arch/dist

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
