Fantastic and please do not take my confusion as being critical. I am
happy to see these packages appearing. Well done to all involved.

The update worked and I have it. Nice.

Does a list of commands for mingw-get exist ? I tried:
plus some other variations and I got a fatal error which seems to erase
the mingw-get executable. Is this a known issue ?

Ah ok so I can get just the binary part. I saw the lic sub-packages for
licenses. I did not know you could distribute the licenses separate from
binary images for some licenses . On a Fedora 12 box I see:
$ rpm -ql gcc-4.4.4-10.fc12.x86_64 | grep COPYING
and with a MinGW package:
lzma -d | tar tvf - | grep COPYING
