pinentry-curses not available?

I don't see a way to download `pinentry-curses` or `pinentry-tty` for
use with `gpg-agent` (using gnupg v2).  Are these not maintained?  Or
am I just looking at the wrong sources?

In any case, I got pinentry-1.1.0 to compile against a cygwin-supplied
version of ncurses, and it mostly works (you still need to tell it to
not detach from the tty, not sure what's up with that).  This is very
useful when signing git commits, and removing the need for a graphical
console just to input my gpg passphrase.
