  Hi all,

  When I try to use Cygwin setup by specifying list of package to download,
all of them are ignored.

  I'm using -P option line this:

  setup-x86_64_2.893.exe -v -d -N -n -D -B -g -A -a x86_64 -p
http://appgw.fcomp.com:80 -P a2ps ,attr ,base-cygwin ,base-files ,bash

Delete the spaces.  The packages should be separated only by commas. Alternatively, delete the commas and use a separate -P for each package.

Yeah, those are the only forms which are correctly handled at the currently.

I think that perhaps setup -P "a2ps , attr" should work, but doesn't, which could be considered a bug...
