After upgrade I haven't found rst2html utility from python3-docutils. Can't
tell you apt-cyg or what caused a problem.

I found it in python37-docutils-0.14-1:

  https://cygwin.com/cgi-bin2/package-grep.cgi?grep=rst2html&arch=x86_64

Assuming that Python versions live in parallel now how should I upgrade on
next major rebuild from 3.7 to 3.8, etc?

My concern is that obsolete python37-docutils-0.14 should depends on new
python38-docutils-0.xx for some period of time and after python37-docutils has
been removed there won't be easy way path to migrate.

Does that mean I need to keep syncing my Cygwin installation periodically?
What is recommended period for upgrades?
