I did this

Pulled up and looked at Cygwin entry:


Cygwin packages are rooted from the source packages, and the online package source summary has homepage and maintainer info, links to the package build repo and build deps, links to the installed binary packages, and those link back to their source package, to their deps, rev deps, and build deps.

Suggest the attached for the Cygwin built curl and Mingw cross build for Windows Devel library.

I expected the following


Cygwin Cross Mingw Devel (GNU Toolchain Windows Builds)

Your changes added only the issues links to public inbox, you should have also kept at least the curl source: package summary entries, as these are the root of the Cygwin package metadata information tree, (as explained in the issue, those source and issues links were the main additions, as build repo and public inbox are leaf links with no distro links or metadata, those are only linked from package source and binary summaries), just as is for Debian packages, for Fedora packages, and for GNU packages!
