Hi Laurent,
thanks for the notice

I am removing 6.2.5-1 and replacing it with 6.2.5-2
to solve the issue.
It should take some hours to propagate.

Unfortunately between 3.8 and 3.9 there was an upstream change that
caused this problem in cygwin package building scripts.
I noticed in some packages, but it seem I missed on pytest.
