Setting up overlay package server


I'm developing some software which consists of several libraries and I would like to distribute it for Cygwin. So, I would need a feature of setting up a custom cygwin repository for my packages. As I understand the most suitable here would be an overlay package server. Right?

Unfortunately, I could find no information on the web about how to set up an overlay package server. Cygwin page https://cygwin.com/package-server.html misses the docs about how to do that also, saying that the manual is TBD. So, is it very complicated to do that, so that even manual is not yet written?

Are there any plans to complete the manual about setting up the overlay package server?

Could somebody give me some hints on how to do that?

And what would be the configurations needed on the user side to start using my overlay server? Ideally, I'd prefer it would be working with apt-cyg script.
