Re: Optimized Cygwin package

Greetings, Kptain!

Today my Cygwin package is around 1.4Gb.
I've tried to restrict amount of package required by distribution, it seems
lot of dependencies are required.
Does someone know how to restrict and optimize Cygwin packages knowing I'm
using it only for this applications?
Given your list - no.
Actually, I'm surprised you've managed to wrest it into 1.5Gb.
Something sounds very wrong about that...

   - gcc
   - python
   - perl
   - mintty
   - shell (mainly tcsh)
   - doxygen
   - make
   - tcl
Off the top of my head, I would expect GCC to be ~100MB, python 30-60MB, shocked if perl/TCL were each larger than 100MB, mintty is measured in kB, most shells and Make are a handful of MB. Doxygen has no strange dependencies.

Even assuming maximal package sizes, that's only 400MB. Where exactly would you expect the other 1GB come from?

Running 64-bit setup.exe pulls the following default package set (package name, compressed size, uncompressed size):

That translates to 36MB downloaded, 115MB decompressed, and 134MB installed.

Adding in the missing packages OP mentioned *except* python downloads the additional files:
doxygen-1.8.5-1.tar.bz2 4.4M 9M
libcatgets1-1.1-2.tar.bz2 4.4K 13k
make-4.0-2.tar.xz 366K 1M
tcl-8.5.11-1.tar.bz2 2.1M 6M
tcsh-6.18.01-3.tar.bz2 550K 1M

The grand total increases to 44/134/155MB.

Python drags in the kitchen sink, with the dependency chain python -> python-tkinter -> tcl-tk -> X:
libexpat1-2.1.0-3.tar.bz2 57K 146k
libffi6-3.0.13-1.tar.bz2 12K 22k
libfontconfig1-2.10.93-1.tar.bz2 131K 284k
libfreetype6-2.4.12-1.tar.bz2 401K 1000k
libopenssl100-1.0.1e-1.tar.bz2 933K 2M
libsqlite3_0-3.7.17-3.tar.bz2 320K 643k
libX11_6-1.6.0-1.tar.bz2 2.5M 26M

libXrender1-0.9.8-1.tar.bz2 29K 74k

python-2.7.5-3.tar.xz 4.3M 26M
python-tkinter-2.7.5-3.tar.xz 194K 1M
tcl-tix-8.4.3-2.tar.bz2 207K 946k
tcl-tk-8.5.11-1.tar.bz2 5.5M 16M

Even then, though, the grand total only increases to 58/211/239 MB.

I'm coming up short about 1.2GB of packages here...

Note: running in download-packages-only mode pulls down some really strange things, and might be (part of) OP's problem. It fails to download the core package set (so you can't actually install a working cygwin), grabs python3, gcc, make, subversion, and tcsh. It also tries to download gcc-debuginfo by default, which is 100MB of .tar.xz goodness. I didn't download all of that to see what it decompresses to.
