Repository I can probably understand ;-) but exactly what does "try
installing your pkg" mean? Do I just drop it in the repository? How is
the setup.ini generated so it includes my package? Is a local temporary
dir (that you get when you install Cygwin) like a repository or do I
need to navigate to a real FTP mirror to investigate? More questions
