Thank you for reviewing, Achim.

Both of pkg_pkg.cygpart and pkg_upload.cygpart are called from cygport

before the functions are called.

But, probably, configuration like this should go to a more suitable
place, as written in comments (in order to avoid concerning which you

For example, it might be placed in this part
