Re: Re: The mingw* mess in Debian
The history has been explained by others. I've been working for a while on
dropping at least gcc-mingw32; see #644769 which tracks the various packages
build-depending on gcc-mingw32 and/or mingw32. There are only three packages
left now; see #623400, #623402 and #623526. Patches are available for all the
bugs so NMUs should be straightforward if they're deemed necessary - I could
do the NMUs but I'd need a sponsor!
thank you very much for taking care of this. It's good to know that
you have already taken measures to drop the obsolete packages. How
about mingw32 (the one without gcc-) and friends?
mingw-w64-i386 and mingw-w64-x64 are a bit ugly but still look sensible
True, but mingw-w64-i686 and mingw-w64-x86_64 would even somehow match
the compilers' GNU tuples.
