Thanks all for the feedback and help. Sorry for showing up at a bad time.
Note: You should perhaps remove the "keepdir" that preserves the
/usr/lib/p7zip/Codecs directory. This drops a zero-size .keep-p7zip
file in there that elicits a warning from p7zip since it isn't a codec.
On the other hand, no warnings if the directory is simply missing and I
don't know of any package that tries to drop anything in there anyway.
I made this suggested change, and think I got everything uploaded.
looks promising, anyway. Guessing the sdesc from setup.hint doesn't
get indexed as often?
Now I should write to cygwin-announce, yeah? And we can remove p7zip
That wasn't so bad! I skimmed through the list of orphaned packages
to see if there was anything else that I'm familiar with building from
source, but nothing jumped out at me.
