Q3: What kind of external access is typically used for hosting final
builds? I've run a micro-ISP that allowed on-request FTP access, by IP
address, to customers, but have not needed to run anonymous FTP to this
point. What about SSH/SFTP? Is there such a thing as anonymous SFTP?
Does HTTP and/or HTTPS access need to be provided?
D'oh, users download source packages from cygwin.com, of course.
I was confused by the SRC_URI= line in cygutils.cygport. Does that merely
indicate where this package came from at the time the .cygport file was
written, or does it denote a commitment by the maintainer to continue
hosting the package from that URI? If the latter, that's why I was asking
about access methods. Is SRC_URI required?
