Moving forward from cygwinports




Hello all,

I have seen that cygwinports has been closed down and I understand the reasons as posted. It's been a great resource and my thanks go out to all maintainers there and here.

What options do I have going forward for packages from that repository that I can confirm do work, but have not (yet) been migrated into the main Cygwin repository?

As an example, my use case is Perl-DBD-Sybase from about three weeks ago, which works beautifully but is not in the main repository. Short of moving to a Linux-based platform I'm now not sure how to proceed. Could someone enlighten me, please?

Much appreciated.
Chris
