Default Packages in the path to getting a Windows binary of libvirt, built from Fedora

It seems like we should have the base MinGW (Windows cross-compiler)
packages in Fedora 11 by the end of this week. This email is to
document the additional packages we need to get approved, in order to
get the cross-compiled libvirt and virt tools into (or buildable by)
Fedora 11.

If you want to help out, please start reviewing by following the
Bugzilla links, and looking at the approved packaging guidelines at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/MinGW.

** For libvirt itself:

mingw32-libgpg-error
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467403

mingw32-libgcrypt
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467410

mingw32-gnutls
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467414

mingw32-gettext
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467398

mingw32-libxml2
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467405

mingw32-portablexdr
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467324

mingw32-readline
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467399

mingw32-termcap
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467329
OR a very brave person can try porting ncurses to Windows.

mingw32-iconv
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467325

mingw32-zlib
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=454416

mingw32-libvirt
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467418

** For the C based tools (gtk-vnc, virt-viewer, ovirt-viewer,
vinagre):

All of the above plus:

mingw32-gtk2
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467420

mingw32-glib2
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467402

mingw32-cairo
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467416

mingw32-jasper
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467408

mingw32-libpng
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467397

mingw32-libjpeg
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467401

mingw32-libtiff (?)
Optional dependency for GTK2, but not yet packaged.

mingw32-libidn

** For the Python based tools (virt-install, virt-manager etc), we're
hoping to go straight to Python 3 on the basis that it will be easier
to contribute patches upstream, and it seems the build system for
Python 3 will be a bit saner than for Python 2.x.

You can help by making sure that all Python software is "Python 3
clean". If you have python 2.6, then just add the '-3' flag to the
command line in order to warn about features which are deprecated and
will be removed in Python 3.

** For the OCaml based tools (virt-df, virt-top):

mingw32-ocaml
mingw32-ocaml-calendar
mingw32-ocaml-csv
mingw32-ocaml-curses
mingw32-ocaml-extlib
mingw32-ocaml-findlib
mingw32-ocaml-lablgl
mingw32-ocaml-lablgtk
mingw32-ocaml-libvirt
mingw32-ocaml-xml-light
(None of these are in Bugzilla yet, and for good reason because
I may just do them as subpackages of the OCaml packages already
in Fedora).

** I haven't had any particular requests for Ruby tools yet. OVirt
itself is a standalone appliance and it doesn't need porting to
Windows. ovirt-viewer is a C application and is being written
concurrently on Linux and Windows anyway. I'm not sure if there are
other standalone bits of ovirt which would make sense being ported to
Windows.
