The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution
and the Fedora Cygwin COPR:

* cygport-0.34.0-1

cygport is the standard method for building and maintaining packages
for the Cygwin distribution.

Highlights of this release:

* A new BUILD_REQUIRES variable is accepted as a list of package names
to check before trying to build as well as add as dependencies in the
(new) separate -src.hint file.  The DEPEND variable (which is not
compatible therewith) is deprecated.

* New [PKG_]PROVIDES and [PKG_]CONFLICTS variables are accepted and
passed into the respective .hint files.

* kde.org: default SRC_URIs are updated for KDE 19.12 and newer.

* meson: cygmeson now passes the --auto-features=enabled flag.

* ocaml-dune: new cygclass for Dune-based OCaml packages.

* perl: new CPAN_SUBDIR optional variable is accepted.

* python3: new PYTHON3_PKGVERSION definition.

* python-wheel: default PYTHON_WHEEL_VERSIONS is now just 3.7 and 3.8.

For contributors, there have been numerous testsuite improvements, and
the testsuite is now run in CI, courtesy of Jon Turney.  A full
changelog follows.
