The previous maintainer cygport is in the Cygwin source package, which you can
install using the Cygwin Setup program, or download
.../x86{,_64}/release/lighttpd/lighttpd-1.4.54-1-src.tar.xz from any Cygwin
mirror, and also in the online repo used by appveyor CI:

Please just copy the contents of your updated lighttpd.cygport and the cygport
generated directory hierarchies lighttpd-1.4.55-1.{x86_64,i686}/dist/ onto
online shared storage somewhere with access via link(s) posted here.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
