As Brian mentioned, the base category is always installed for a new
installation. After that, what's installed is automatically updated
with each subsequent run of 'setup.exe'. The list of installed
packages is kept in /etc/setup/installed.db. There's no external
'trigger' that dictates what's installed or updated by default. That's
part of the logic of 'setup.exe'.
