A bit of history:
Back in May, Max Bowsher gave up maintainership of a bunch of packages.
I adopted a few of them, and released sqlite3-3.5.8-1. There was some
concern about the fact that my package didn't ship with a DLL version of
the library, only a static library. I got comments from Dr. Zell on how
to fix it, but did nothing more about it, since I didn't think a DLL was
really necessary. It's the sort of library best linked statically.
Apparently I was perceived as dropping the ball, because Max's last
packages are still on the mirrors.
Now there's a thread on the main Cygwin list about people needing a
static version of libsqlite3 to link against Python. (Irony...) These
packages include both versions. I hope they pass this time.
Due to the spotty maintainership and rough change-over, this is a pretty
big jump over the current stuff on the mirrors.
