Marco, are you able to get this updated?  I've had a play with the
current cygport file, and it looks like the update works trivially,
although I haven't been able to set up a test environment to test it
locally.  My changes are at [0] if you want to see them, but I don't
think there's anything very interesting.

Maciej, it looks like you should be able to install this yourself from
PyPI or from the source itself.  Alternatively I've prepared a Cygwin
package that you should be able to install manually.


-   If you have an appropriate version of `python*-pip` installed, run

        python3 -m pip install git-review

-   If you want to install from source yourself, it's available at

-   If you want to use my tentative Cygwin build, make sure you have
    the curl, python39 and python39-setuptools packages installed, and
    the git-review package _uninstalled_, then run:

        curl -L https://github.com/me-and/Cygwin-git-review/releases/download/v2.3.1-1-prerelease.10.1/git-review-2.3.1-1.tar.xz | tar -xJC/

    As above, I've not actually been able to test this package, so I
    can't provide any guarantees about it, but you're very welcome to
    give it a go!
