I'd therefore been assuming that I didn't need to worry about syncing
a Git release with the Perl update; have I misunderstood what's going

PS: I am once again battling a bunch of test failures, as I prefer to
not release a Git build with undiagnosed failures in the test suite
when it's the official Cygwin distribution. I'm slowly working my way
through the problems, but there is ongoing progress on getting a new
release out.
