Re: New setup.exe release candidate - please test
Ugh, top-posting... Oh, well...
This behavior is by design. Setup doesn't remember the source packages
that were installed -- only the binary ones. One way to fix this would be
to introduce dummy (empty) binary packages for the two source-only
packages -- feel free to propose this on the cygwin-apps list. Another
(proper) fix would be to patch setup.exe -- again, feel free to post a
patch on the cygwin-apps list.
