If Yaakov applied the changes necessary to get the 64 bit setup running

for the current cygwin/64bit/release test area?

Before we do that, I think we need to consider a bit of reorganization. As in any binary distribution, there are many "noarch" packages which could be used for both i686 and x86_64. Providing two identical copies is just a waste of storage and bandwidth for sourceware, mirrors, and users.

Instead, I think it would make sense to make three sibling trees, one
for i686 (the current release/ directory), one for x86_64, and one for
noarch packages.  Then, there would be two scans by upset: setup.ini
from i686 and noarch, and setup64.ini from x86_64 and noarch.



in that case we need to assure same package name.

Just noted:

64 bit
$ tar -tf readline-6.2-1.tar.bz2 |grep dll

32 bit
$ cygcheck -f /usr/bin/cygreadline7.dll

and it is not the only one
