Sorry for the late response, but I prepared a patch for
mingw32-filesystem to add -debug subpackage support. Is it okay to
commit this?

I've also added a patch for one of my packages to indicate the steps
needed for all mingw32 packages to get -debug subpackage support. It
basically consists of two extra lines.

There's one thing that needs attention: one needs to add
%define __os_install_post %{_mingw32_debug_install_post}
to the spec file. %global doesn't work in this case!

One thing I noticed while preparing this is that there's an openSuSE
buildsystem project [1] which has basically forked all our work and
added more features and packages to it. I wonder why this fork was done
and why features (like this -debug subpackage support) haven't been
proposed upstream (to us) sooner? Several packages there also have their
ChangeLog stripped away so the history can't be viewed anymore..
