Download Directory Structure for setup.exe
I've updated from CVS and built and used the last couple (2.175 and 2.176)
setup.exe's. It will take me a while to get used to the new source
organization and I wanted to check a few of my assumptions before I dig them
out of the source.
It appears that all new downloads, both setup.ini and package files, now go
to source specific subtrees, for example files from
ftp://ftp.mirrors.rcn.net/mirrors/sources.redhat.com/cygwin are saved in
After setup.ini is downloaded from all candidates, either they are merged or
the newest one is used. Likewise, the package file found in any subtree may
be used for installing that package.
