Re: Setup 2.895, don't install everything, striking a balance

Thanks Denis, with your instructions I was able to successfully get
the exact packages that I wanted.

https://cygwin.com/install.html seems to infer that source truly is
included when installing everything:

<<<<< A: You do not want to do this! This will install an enormous
number of packages that you will never use, including debuginfo
*****and source***** for every package.>>>>>

Perhaps a button could be added on the setup window for those who want
to install all binaries and associated configs but without every
debuginfo file, or at least a two or three line help window with an OK
button.

I initially tried the "default install," but python and other packages
were missing, so, to save time I installed everything.

I've become accustomed to make regular use of a wide range of packages.
