The load at https://cygwin.com/git/ is too high at the moment
and I get "503 - The load average on the server is too high"


https://cygwin.com/cgit/ may behave better.


Take a look at some mirrors.

For cygport code:
https://github.com/cygwin/cygport


This is just a mirror of https://cygwin.com/cgit/cygwin-apps/cygport/

You should probably take a look at the cygport manual () before reading 
the source code.



Lots of individual repositories under here with cygport projects
https://github.com/cygwinports/


No, don't look there!

Those repositories haven't been updated for some time, and really should 
really be archived, but the owner is too busy.



e.g.
https://github.com/cygwinports/python36


https://cygwin.com/cgit/cygwin-packages/python36/
