#163 Updated MinGW packaging guidelines (based on mingw-w64)
Closed: Fixed None Opened 8 years ago by epienbro.


Last year we (the Fedora MinGW SIG) proposed a new set of the MinGW Packaging Guidelines which make it possible to build RPMs for both the Win32 and Win64 targets (ticket #71). These packaging guidelines were approved but couldn't be made active yet due to pending legal approval on the use of the mingw-w64 toolchain.

Earlier this year we finally got the legal approval and we were able to continue our work by introducing the mingw-w64 toolchain in Fedora. All pieces belonging to the mingw-w64 toolchain and the new packaging infrastructure are available now in Fedora 17 and rawhide. Therefore we would like the FPC to review and approve our revised MinGW Packaging Guidelines and make them active starting with Fedora 17. The draft for these new MinGW packaging guidelines can be found at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/MinGWCrossCompiler

The global list of changes between the [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:MinGW_Future MinGW_Future packaging guidelines] and these new ones can be found at http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/mingw/2012-April/005206.html

Thanks in advance,

Any chance you could put up the approved draft? We're already having new mingw packagers who are confused by the lack of up to date official documentation.

Thanks in advance,

Sorry for the delay, I've just committed the change and will announce it shortly.
