The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* crypto-policies-20190218-1

This package provides a tool update-crypto-policies, which sets the 
policy applicable for the various cryptographic back-ends, such as 
SSL/TLS libraries. The policy set by the tool will be the default policy 
used by these back-ends unless the application user configures them 

This is a new addition to the distribution.  The latest OpenSSL, GnuTLS, 
and NSS have all been configured to use this by default.  Applications 
still need to be patched to use these instead of overriding the default 
config, as described further:


Patches for such packages should be available from Fedora.
