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  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!
