Cygwin packages installation page

Hihi, another question for Cygwin gurus...

While im installing, there are many packages that can be installed.
Beside each packages, there are three columns:
status Keep, Reinstall, Uninstall, Source
bin? "blank", "cross", "n/a"
src? "blank', "cross", "n/a"

my question are:
1. what is the meaning/function of "Keep" and "Source" in status column?
2. what is "bin?" for?
3. what is "scr?" for?
4. what is meaning by "blank", "cross" and "n/a"?

"Keep" means keep the package as is
"Source" means get the source for the package

"bin" means binary
"src" means source code
