Too many unknowns to give any sensisble prediction. We're waiting on the
releng/infrastructure guys to create a dedicated build root for mingw
stuff, and set things to it publishes into a separate YUM repo as per
earlier Fedora Board decision[1].  I've no idea how hard/complex this
is, or how long it'll take. Once that's done then we need to bootstrap
the build, and get all the packages through review.

Be nice to have it all done for F10, but no idea if that is practical
as the infrastructure team is very busy.
