Re: wise way to install cygwin packages

But I think even not involve in any new design or a new command line

big problem is, when I can not change a package's state directly into
'uninstall' without going through other states such as a version
number state 'nn.nn.nn'. When I have to go through the version number
state (as necessary middle step according to current GUI installer
design), I actually automatically re-select (or re-active) other
packages that depend on this package I am operating on, this is not I
expect and indeed create troubles.
This is also a well known and well discussed issue. The only thing missing
is a (current?) patch.
