There was some weird politics from the Fedora board who had a secret
meeting (no records) without telling the MinGW SIG before nor
informing anyone after.  I only found out about the secret meeting a
week later quite by chance.  As a result I got a bit hacked off about
the whole thing.

Technically there are some fixes required to make it all happen,
mainly to get a cleaner solution to the current hack involving
__os_install_post.

All current work is here:

  http://hg.et.redhat.com/misc/fedora-mingw--devel/

Please edit the SIG page and submit patches if you want to get
involved.
