post-install, if I want to install or grab a package, there should be a CLI interface that will let me do that from within msys-mingw (or even the normal command line if I have the mingw directory added to PATH).

    You've had this capability for four years already; try

    mingw-get --help
    

    from your command line, (either MSYS or cmd.exe, provided mingw-get.exe is in $MINGW_ROOT/bin, and this is in $PATH).

    strangely I was getting a file does not exist error at one point recently, but it worked fine when I tried it again.

    Sorry to bother you.
