This repository was my starting point, I just increased the version and 
prepared the package (below) for the new python dependency (fasterners). 
I did not see on the contribution page any mention to the `playground` 
thing and an automation - will try that, once my SSH key is added.

As my first contribution to cygwin I wanted to start with small steps 
and stay with 0.7 duplicity, which still depends on the Python 2.7

Is it a must at this moment? As I stated above, duplicity 0.7.x requires 
Python 2.7

I changed the `inherit` to python-wheel, which should support 2.7,3.8, 3.9:

inherit python-wheel


But the cygport does not create the archive for 2.7 and fails with

... <shortened the list>
*** ERROR: Packages are missing files:

I tried previous cygport version, but it fails creating python 3.7 package.

I'll try to look to cygport sources if I am able to see something, which 
I doubt.
