I noticed that you were contibuting mingw/gcc tests for Windows and then
you stopped doing so. Is it possible to peridically run those tests
again, or is is taking up too much of your time and resources ?
I am going to attempt again to contribute my own gcc, and perhaps even
clang, tests for Windows, although clang is much more error-prone when
dealing with non-header only libraries.
