Can you take a look at this? I'm afraid that we can't stop them from
calling their package mingw as we there is no legal trademark on it.

thinking about the whole "u++-ld" issue, now I got afraid about another
We distribute altered (with our ld and ar) and vastely stripped mingw
with U++, still calling it 'mingw'. Well, there are not mingw labels
all around, but the package is named '*-mingw' and all is stored in
'mingw' directory. The main reason is that we want to give a full
credit to the work of mingw team.
Is this OK with mingw team?
In fact, I believe mingw is just the name of windows api layer and is
public domain, am I right?

Whoever is negotiating with them might also want to make sure that their
bug reports are sent to the proper place. A user who is experiencing
errors from a piece of software with a component called "mingw" is very
likely to find mingw.org via a search engine.
