Hi there!

As the inetutils' tftpd is too limited for our use cases, I tried packaging
tftp-hpa. From tftp-hpa's README:

----------
This is tftp-hpa, a conglomerate of a number of versions of the BSD
TFTP code, changed around to port to a whole collection of operating
systems.  The goal is to work on any reasonably modern Unix with
sockets.

The tftp-hpa series is maintained by H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>.

The latest version of this collection can be found at:

    ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/software/network/tftp/
----------

tftp-hpa is a rather common package, available for many Linux distributions,
e.g. SUSE ([1]) and Debian ([2]).

Please find my packages here:

wget -r -np -nH -R "index*" \
	http://h1629194.serverkompetenz.net/tftp-hpa/

This is setup.hint:

-----------
category: Net
requires: cygwin
sdesc: "extended version of the BSD TFTP client and server"
ldesc: "tftp-hpa is an enhanced version of the BSD TFTP client and 
server. It possesses a number of bugfixes and enhancements over the 
original. It has been made portable and will work on pretty much any 
modern Unix variant."
-----------

As this is my first Cygwin package, please let me know if anything could
be improved, thx!
