Hi,

Because there are problems with setup v2.889, I decided to do
some testing of my own.

I started out with empty directories for the repo (a.k.a. the
Local Directory?) and the root directory ...

After having downloaded and installed the "required" packages,
I again started setup (3rd time and 4th time) to download and
install "cscope" (yes, one of the packages).

Then I started setup for the 5th time (download): it reported
"nothing to install".

When I started setup for the 6th time (install), it wanted to
replace cscope (v15.8b-1)  with an older version (15.8.0.1-2)

Sorry, I should have added ...

I always invoke setup using a shortcut, i.e. the invocation is
always parameterized as follows:

    E:\_cygwin64_repository-test\setup-x86_64-2889.exe \
    -n -R e:/Cygwin64-test -l e:/_cygwin64_repository-test

(startup-directory: e:/_cygwin64_repository-test)

From /var/log/setup.log:

2018/03/04 15:35:20    1   erase
   cscope             15.8b-1

From override.hint on the "Twente" mirror:

curr: 15.8b-1
prev: 15.8.0.1-2
replace-versions: 15.8.0.1-2

As far as understand, setup should attempt to install v15.8b1
in case v15.8.0.1-2 is installed.

Not the other way around. (currently v15.8b-1 in installed).
