The packages are thin wrappers around pip, that actually installs or uninstalls
the package.  So they involve downloads from pypi - I guess it's a proxy issue
that blocks that for you (%OSGEO4W_ROOT%/var/log/setup.log(.full) should have
more details).

I guess I should come up with some script that installs the files locally an
produces a package from it.

That needs to be done anyway, because the "standalone" installer would
currently just include the wrappers and in turn download from pypi too...

Currently only master depends on the above...
