Re: MinGW cross compiled library packages for Debian

Dear Debian Mentors,

thanks a lot for your ideas and opinions. After having thought about
it, I try to summarize what I plan to do:

I don't think I should ask every Debian maintainer to produce
mingw32 binary packages. Instead, I'll build extra Debian
packages using the sources of GnuWin32 (http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net).

The libraries libsmpeg, SDL_mixer, ... are not covered by GnuWin32,
but they don't have any good MinGW builds anyway. So I think it's
better to ask GnuWin32 to support these packages.

The only remaining library is SDL which isn't covered by GnuWin32
and has good MinGW builds. But even that package should be included
in GnuWin32, because GnuWin32 has a nice installing system (for
Windows MinGW).

What do you think about it? Is it reasonable? Is it good practice?
Is there anything else I should take care of?
