Well, for some reason that didn't work as expected.   The -s switch doesn't
seem to do it.  Maybe because it's an unlisted mirror.

So I made a osgeo4w-setup-testing.exe - that complains now that the last used
mirror was dropped and complained about your python package.

Extracting and repacking it with the tar on upload.osgeo.org fixed it.

Well, that might need some more work ;)
