Gah at !@!!!@

It would be nice, for a *correct* statement not to be *incorrectly*

Run Setup.
Choose Download from Internet at the appropriate time.
In the 'Category' View, clikck on the word default to the right of All.
Click again, until it shows 'reinstall'.
Now, switch to Full view, and observe that every installed package is
marked as 'retrieve'.

Tada - one populated cache.

Note: this will redownload everything, even if it is already in the

GPG key available at: <>.
