For some reason the task (Task Warrior) package is not available for Cygwin 64-bit. So annoying!

Meh, yea, it seems to me like there are a lot of packages still missing from Cygwin64. I am sure that will get better in the future, though. It's still quite new, compared to the x86 version of Cygwin.
3. It's very easy to compile taskwarrior from source in cygwin64! Also, you get the latest and greatest version. :) Just make sure you have make, g++, GnuTLS, libuuid and libreadline installed. I had those already.
# or, if you want to install in $HOME rather than /, cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME .
