Greetings. I develop computer forensic tools using mingw64. 

It's very important that these tools be statically linked. 

Would it be possible for the mingw32-libgnurx.noarch and the mingw64-libgnurx.noarch be expanded to include statically linked versions in addition to the DLLs?

Hi Simon,

Although the/a Fedora MinGW-w64 package maintainer reads this list's emails, your question is kind of off topic here, where the MinGW-w64 tools, headers and libraries are discussed (along with eventual bugs and feature requests).

You will get a much faster and directed response when you contact the Fedora team through their usual channels:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/MinGW#Communication

Cheers,

Ruben
 

Thanks,

Simson
