Description Jan Holesovsky 2011-10-17 06:25:23 UTC
This is the Meta bug to track most annoying bugs of the MinGW build on Windows. It helps developers to concentrate on bugs that are important for the release of the MinGW port. Also it helps users to be aware of potential problems.

If anyone wants to raise a Bug for the release, please add the Bug ID as
dependent Bug here to the Meta Bug in field "Depends on". Additionally please
leave a comment here why you think that the bug should be privileged.

*IMPORTANT* Before adding a bug here, please check that it is MinGW-specific bug, ie. you see it only in the MinGW daily builds (available from the address below), but in no other ones.

Comment 16 Thomas Arnhold 2014-06-15 20:28:42 UTC
Jan, can I close those MinGW bug reports an WONTFIX?
Comment 17 Jan Holesovsky 2014-06-17 04:24:24 UTC
Thomas: Please do close the MinGW-related reports, yes.

The MinGW port is dead, there is no need for that any more - our normal Windows build became pretty reliable & easy to set up in the meantime, so I have no motivation to maintain the MinGW port :-)
