Hi all,

I am writing this email to spread the word a bit more that we would like to
drop support for MinGW on windows.
We have a task to discuss this here: https://developer.blender.org/T51301
along with a patch: https://developer.blender.org/D2648

This will remove MinGW support from core Blender but leave it in places
like cycles where it is still possible to maybe build with MinGW
and still get some performance gain. Again, please see
https://developer.blender.org/T51301 for more information on why we would
like to drop support.
