Re: local cygwin mirror
What I would expect is that when I do a download only install,
the packages I select will be downloaded (of course). When I do
it again, I would expect to be presented with new/updated packages
that have been added to the remote repository in the interim and
I can choose to download or not (via the same selection process as
now). I would also expect to be able to select for download packages
that I hadn't chosen the first time. All of this based on what is
in the downoad directory, not what happens to be installed or not.
It should be possible to write a script that would look in the download
directory and create a corresponding (temporary) /etc/setup/stalled.db
so that setup's operation is dependent on what's in the download
directory rather than what's installed on a given machine.
Or, you could just work with the system as it is by installing all
packages you want to mirror on your download machine and always doing
the download/update from that machine; thus, the local machine's
packages will be the same as the local directory's packages.
