Our request for a mass rename of all mingw32-* package to mingw-* was
discussed in the FESCO meeting yesterday and we got their approval! This
means that we can now start with renaming all packages with the prefix
'mingw32-*' so that they use 'mingw-*' as prefix instead. After all
packages have been renamed we can start with porting the individual
packages to the new MinGW packaging guidelines.

What does this mean for you packagers?
