Yeah, it's really too bad.  I had so hoped that Dave would still be with

I now orphaned all gcc packages in cygwin-pkg-maint.

If anybody feels bold enough to take up gcc maintainership, please step

It would be most appreciated if you would also be willing to take over
maintainership of the 64 bit compiler, as soon as we start the official

requirement to provide cross compilers 32->64 and 64->32 bit, too.
