Randall, there is a difference between being able to use a tool for
something, and it being designed for something.
Being the setup maintainer, I think I am in the position of being able
to state it's design parameters!
I repeat: Setup is not designed for mirroring, and if one wants to grab
all the binaries, and all the sources, then one should use a mirroring
I've no objection to a second .exe being built leveraging the setup.exe
source, in the cinstall directory that *is* designed for mirroring, but
I am not going to try to make setup.exe a mirror tool for cygwin! The
reasons have already been stated, both here and on cygwin-apps.
