I've prepared a branch on top of current master for your perusal:

As you can see they've been battle-tested by me for quite some time already:

commit 779a7dd2fc834d45fb0f46cded647557ece17d8f (to-upstream)
Date:   Sat Apr 20 20:02:33 2013 +0200

    switch submodule gnuconfig to HTTPS protocol
    Live more easily with stupid firewalls...

commit fd17952c457b808e360e5ed75ffae8d9571283ad
Date:   Sun Dec 6 13:32:38 2015 +0100

    lib/pkg_pkg.cygpart: uniquify requirements after the version has been stripped off
    * lib/pkg_pkg.cygpart: Move the "sort -fu" command to after the
      stripping of the version part.  Otherwise some dependencies might
      get listed twice (perl_base does this sometimes).

commit 40296640fdd0951d72ae0c107f2a46bbf8111ca3
Date:   Wed Oct 3 08:56:42 2012 +0200

    support subdirectories in CPAN download URL
    * cygclass/perl.cygclass: Allow CPAN_AUTHOR to have an /... suffix.
      This is necessary for some modules that put the distribution files
      in some subdirectory.  Only upcase the actual author name (up until
      the first "/") and preserve case for the suffix part.  By request of
      Reini Urban, also add a variable CPAN_DIR that alternately, if set,
      will be used to concatenate as ${CPAN_AUTHOR}/${CPAN_DIR} before
      determining the CPAN download URL.  Neither variable should have a
      slash ("/") at the beginning or the end.

commit 22b3f22b92c472df80be0fdcfd3854bfd19e16f8

    pkg_info.cygport: correct search order for Perl dependencies
    * lib/pkg_info.cygpart: Correct search order for Perl dependencies and
      suppress auto-generation of Perl dependencies when NO_PERL_DEPS is
    Dependency generation for Perl at least is too simplistic and doesn't
    take into account that some modules required or used might actually be
    optional.  It tends to generate too long dependency lists that vary
    with the Perl distributions already installed.
    For starters, the search order should be the reverse of
    @INC to skip dependencies that are built-in to perl already, but that
    doesn't pick up those modules that are needed with a higher version
    since only the presence of the module is detected.  Files in site_perl
    shoud never be searched since these are local installs.  Files in
    vendor_perl might be useful to check, however due to the version
    problem it is better to inject the module dpenedencies from the
    cygport file.  So skip those searches when NO_PERL_DEPS is defined,
    which it will be for auto-generated cygport files for Perl
    distributions (the information is pulled from CPAN/MetaCPAN).

commit 2e61b06df6bd5a742f92c25b50d335945e17a34b
Date:   Sat Aug 18 12:43:23 2018 +0200

    bin/ provide all-test / almostall-test commands on CLI for symmetry with package-test / pkg-test

commit 34e6e1f2dcdf45ac4a3f9e70cae1a8290d860cd9
Date:   Fri Nov 3 21:47:54 2017 +0100

    Automatically create a test release if the release string starts with a literal "0"
    * lib/pkg_pkg.cygpart: Test for a literal "0" as the first character
      in the release string and make a test release if true.

commit 7f6fb93eaa9e4afe9e12bd57ebb3e8a4daa135ff
Date:   Sat Apr 8 17:00:34 2017 +0200

    Show pkg_tag in chatter
    lib/pkg_pkg.cygpart: inform when creating hint files for a test

commit 01e199380e32f214c2809d3dcc76f51b61de6d01
Date:   Sat Sep 17 10:07:10 2016 +0200

    lib/src_install.cygpart: correct test in make_etc_defaults, possibly show diff
    * lib/src_install.cygpart (make_etc_defaults): The preremove script
      only removes plain files when they match the default, so the
      postinstall script must not install files if _anything_ with the
      same name already exists.  Change the test from '-f' to '-e'.  If
      /usr/bin/diff is installed and the target is a plain file, show the
      diff to the default so the user can decide more easily what to do.
