thanks for sharing the news and submitting patches!

Personally I cannot judge if and how they can be integrated.
Gpg4win crosscompiles for windows and thus cygwin+msvc seems
to be a new toolchain.

Can you send a link to the code that you have in your public repo somwhere?

Also it would be cool if you document your contract somewhere, so it stays on 
record. (For some of the contracts related to Gpg4win, we used, at your deliberation you can use the wiki as 
well. At least I'd like to link to it. :) )
