I was hoping you could give some advise however. Is there a quick way
to find which packages are installed, which are now no longer being
maintained. ie. no longer available, because cygwinports.org is gone,
and they never found their way into the accepted Cygwin packages.

Remove the Ports repository from setup's download location (or at least
the setup.ini files).  Then run setup again normally; any package which
is not listed in a repository known to setup will be in the Misc category.

Thanks, that worked. The list reflects the enormity of the good work
you've put in.
