I am planning to orphan mingw-qt.
- it fails to build on F28, presumably due to the __debug_install_post
hook not generating the debugsource lists properly
- releng/Till complains that the build log is now 3Gbytes long (due to
more elaborate compiler diagnostics)
Fixing this is more work than I'm willing to do.
Furthermore, the last released version of 4.8 is 3 years old, and we
have qt5 in mingw. Keeping qt4 alive seems like more work than it's worth...
I've had my stuff installed for so long I hadn't thought about it until I
was stepping someone else through the process of getting a basic mingw
build system setup from scratch, but...
What would it take to have a group added to dnf just to install all the
"stuff" you're almost always going to need?
The packaging guidelines page gives you a hint as to what's minimal but
that's for people wanting to make additional packages available in Fedora,
not for people wanting to know how to setup a development environment...
If there is anyone who would like to become the mailing list owner please reply
either to myself or this list posting.
I don't mind doing it, but I wouldn't mind adding a co-owner.
