What I did with <http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin-apps/setup.html> was
just put the date with no name. Perhaps there could be some linked webpage
explaining the copyright issues someday. I've also been told that
"Copyright (c) 2000, 2001,2002, 2003, 2004, 2005" (as on cygwin.com)
means something different than 2000-2005 to lawyers.
A small suggestion: a link to the User's Guide setup section
<http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/setup-net.html> on the first screen
and/or the chooser would be great since I bet that's where people are
most likely to want help.
I just used it to upgrade from cygwin-1.5.15-1 and it mostly worked fine.
I definitely think the improvements are a step up from the current, thanks
for moving on this. The only problem was that I got the cygwin1.dll "not found"
message--I think from the man uninstall script. Not a big deal since it seemed
to have worked fine.

Another thought for the future: since setup is stopping anti-virus,
could it also
automatically stop and start sshd or other Cygwin services? This would
probably require coordination with cygrunsrv, maybe a shared config file like
/etc/setup/services or something.
