I have a few Python packages built (and very minor change) for Python 3.8, but before I follow the directions for package contributions, I have a few questions:

1. I am only running cygport --64 <PYTHON-PACKAGE>.cygport all-test, is there anything else I should do? I have a local "test" repo I use to get them installed via Cygwin Setup.

2. I am using the --64 arg to cygport because I don't have a 32-bit install of Cygwin, must I get a 32-bit Cygwin install running so I can make 32-bit packages (to be uploaded)?

3. Is there decorum for this of work for Cygwin? Like a packagers mailing list?

4. Do I or should I have a package mentor? Right now, I am "winging" it b/c my consumer is myself, but I'd like to know how the sausage is made so I Do It Right.

The Python  packages in the Python 3.8 flavor I have ready:
