Sorry, but I can only point you to my previous answer:
I suspect that Yaakov is just busy with other things. Are you willing to take
over as maintainer of those packages (assuming that Yaakov is willing to give
them up)? If so, an email to the cygwin-apps mailing list offering to do that
would be appropriate.
I need those packages to build Tesseract for Windows.
I would also like to contribute packages for Leptonica (also needed for
Tesseract): mingw64-x86_64-leptonica and mingw64-i686-leptonica.
Building such packages is easy, but how can I can get them into the
official package distribution?
