I'm having some problems (gpg2, and some for ssh management) with keychain
package: https://www.cygwin.com/packages/summary/keychain.html

It version is 2.7.1, can be upgraded to, by example the last 2.8.5?

It is here: https://github.com/funtoo/keychain/tree/2.8.5

Fow now, I implement a very weird implementation to fix this (very old
keychain version) in pseudocode:

If I am inside Cygwin and keychain version is 2.7.1 then:
curl -L -o /usr/bin/keychain

But it is a weird workaround, you can upgrade this package? If not exists
any security problem clearly...

The upstream repo has not been updated since 2018.
You might be better finding a more modern, secure, compatible login manager like gnome-keyring or KDE kwalletmanager, or improved process like using known hosts and authorized keys files to limit access.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis              Calgary, Alberta, Canada
