Um. I think this is a really simple request. We've seen it more than
once. People don't understand that the same program they used to install
cygwin can be used to update their installation with new packages.
So the correct answer is to "rerun setup.exe and choose what you want".
There is no need to suggest untarring everything or doing anything by
hand or in a non-standard way.
