In June I presented the idea of a "Package file lists archive" and was met with
this

However Christopher has since left the project

I would like to revisit this issue. I would like to see if I can help in any way
to make this happen. My work on "apt-cyg" has been hindered by the issue with
"cygcheck --package-query"
