Looking to set up a partial mirror of Cygwin package server


Hi all,

We're looking to set up a partial mirror of the Cygwin package servers to serve the few (around 50) packages that we use on a daily basis - essentially setting up a repo for our users to download those Cygwin apps which are approved on our system. Essentially, we'd like to have our personal package server be an available option to our users - preferably the only available option - on the list of Cygwin mirrors in the installer, and to only list those packages which are approved (with no automatic updates - we are most likely freezing these versions until they are next approved in order to comply with company policy). Currently, we are simply including all packages as a "Local Download" after downloading them without installing and compressing them into an archive, but this method doesn't allow us to set up a proper mirror + setup.ini file as the .hint files are not included with the download (even when installing source files). This also means that users have to download ALL packages even if they only want to download a subset of them with our current method.

Can anyone run me through how to set up a partial, non-updated package server for Cygwin, as I am unable to do so by following the Cygwin package server setup guide on the Cygwin site?

Thanks!
Dmytro
