We (another open source project) have bumped into some problems using named
pipes with multiple writers

As far as I can see, reading through history, this have been a known issue
for quite some time, but it seems like there have been some attempts to
solve it, e.g. in the branch topic/fifo (by Ken Brown)

I tried to build that branch and also tried to merge related commits to
master and build that, but all without success and I guess the changes need
some background info to understand how to manually incorporate the changes
into later versions of master

Does anyone have any knowledge about if this (topic/fifo branch) is working
and/or if it is somehow planned to make it into the master branch and end up
in a future release ?

That branch is obsolete. Support for multiple writers was added to Cygwin as of release 3.1.0.
