This looks pretty close.

Where do I learn what I can put into setup.defaults? Looks like it could do the job I want.

What I don't want: a local copy of the to-be-installed egg to begin with.

What I want: chicken-install installing eggs almost like normal. For eggs being overwritten however, I'd want it to go through the complete download process, just using the location from the other release-info.

Great if a hand full of overwrites could sit in a single file like setup.defaults.

Hi Jörg,

Brings back the question: how would I tell chicken to temporarily consult other locations for egg distributions? E.g. I'd like to use chicken-install in a fresh location outside the source directory of the egg to check that the whole download picks the correct files and all of them. Or maybe I just want to install an egg I deem not good enough to release.

Maybe you're looking for a custom entry in share/chicken/setup.defaults.
Maybe something like:

(server (location "/path/to/my/eggs") (transport local))
