Hello to everyone,

I'm interested in becoming a package maintainer for the program jdupes.

It would be a new package for the cygwin distribution, but it is already
distributed on different systems.
For example

The current release can be downloaded from

and can be compiled on cygwin without patches (necessary changes have 
been integrated by the author after contacting him).

jdupes has a native windows port, but I see an added value having it 
available in cygwin.

It is a program similar to fdupes (already present in cygwin), and is 
not a drop-in replacement. From the website description:

 > Why use jdupes instead of the original fdupes or other duplicate finders?
 > The biggest reason is raw speed. In testing on various data sets, 
jdupes is over 7 times faster than fdupes-1.51 on average.

.hint and .cygport files are attached

Best regards

sdesc: "jdupes is a program for identifying and taking actions upon duplicate files"
ldesc: "Searches the given path(s) for duplicate files.
Such files are found by comparing file sizes, then partial and full file hashes, followed by a byte-by-byte comparison.
The default behavior with no other <action options> specified (delete, summarize, link, dedupe, etc.) is to print sets of matching files."
