I can't duplicate this. If I redirect stdout I get this:
Starting cygwin install, version 2.774
and the log files contain the correct version too.
Moreover, I can't find the string 2.769 in any object file that was used to

No, I don't think that level of bookkeeping is worth it. setup.exe is
not a product. You don't have to download it to get new features that
you need day-to-day. If you are worried about always getting the newest
version before updating Cygwin then you could just write a "runsetup.bat"
wget -O setup.exe --quiet http://cygwin.com/setup.exe
And execute "runsetup" every time you want to perform an update.
