Heh. I didn't know anyone else knew about that page, but apparently it's
linked to. I've added a lot since Google indexed it, though, just
look at their cache. Your suggestion about the title was well taken, I've
changed it to "The Cygwin setup.exe Package Server" since I don't know of any
other name for the thing. I also added a sentence about setup.ini at the
beginning and some links so you don't have to scroll down to see the "custom"
I do link to <http://cygwin.com/setup.html> which truly documents the setup.ini
and setup.hint files. Maybe that page would be a good place to add some
comments about upset?
