I am trying to bring the build env up to date.
MinGW was probably selected initially with the view to:
1- cross-compile some components which comes from linux
2- ensure no GPL lock-in (as initially these components were closed source)

Would you now if this still apply or if the Unix stack is only used for file 
management (i.e. not compiling with gcc)? Cygwin would allow easier 
installation of python, bash, make, git in a single env.
At the moment I am using:
- MinGW/MSYS (legacy)
- Windows Git version (launched from the most recent MinGW (using mingw-get)
- Windows Embeded Python (in preparation, have not tested it)

I am hoping to make the windows build compatible with vs2017 and WDK10.
But for now, I have only automated
- qubes-builder set-up from get-be.ps1 file

sourceforge being DDOSed these last few days does not help...
