This is cool.  I did a search on Google today for "upset Cygwin" and 
your page is the seventh result.  However, I think that the title of the 
page or the intro could be tweaked to get more people to realize that 
your page is the page that they are looking for to find out how to 
create Cygwin setup.ini files.  Given all that I know about Cygwin, 
setup.ini, upset, and packaging, a cursory view of your page caused me 
to toss it because I didn't think that it pertained to what I was 
looking for (I wanted to send Mark a link that described how to create a 
setup.ini file).  Maybe it would be a good idea to add a subtitle (The 
Cygwin Package Server: How to create a custom setup.ini file for 
Cygwin's setup.exe).
