Nothing that I've used before, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.  There
obviously is some sort of an API that the osc CLI is using (I don't know
any details of that either), but how far that extends to plain HTTPS
REST requests I don't know.

That is probably not urgent, but I'd check if it can be re-enabled.  For
a while Cygwin had a too old autoconf version that would not work with
some packages tha twere using the newer ones, but that's no longer an
issue I'd think.

In principle you should remove all files that are recreated anyway in
DISTCLEANFILES.  Now, generated files showing up in the diff at all is a
likely deficiency in configure, as these should not be generated in the
source directory at all, I'd think.  But getting a project that isn't
quite cleaned up for a separate build dir to put the files in the right
place (and later find them) can be quite an adventure.
