Setup request

To keep up to date, every day when booting I automatically update Cygwin
with the following in a startup batch file.

setup -B -q -n -o -R <path> -l <path>

Even when nothing is updated, setup seems to rebase and run all the
/etc/postinstall/zp_* files.

This seems unnecessary.  If that is correct, would it be possible to have
setup always skip rebase & zp_* when not packages are updated, or
at least have a command line option to skip rebase and running zp_*?

I'm not a developer, so I cannot contribute a patch.  Sorry.

Thanks for considering this.
