When Gerrit says that things are "automatically selected", he assumes that
you're using Cygwin's setup.exe to install the packages.  However, as
you're talking about "catalogs", it looks like you're using ftp instead.
Note that Cygwin's setup is the only recommended (read: supported) way of
installing Cygwin packages -- any other method of installation is likely
to leave you with a broken system unless you know *exactly* what you're
doing.  If you do use setup.exe to install your Cygwin packages, please
disregard this message.
