MinGW Package Download and Installation Tool
mingw-get is a tool to assist users in the management of MinGW and MSYS
software installations. Configured via an online XML database, which is
managed by the project maintainers, it offers a command line driven user
interface facilitating selective download and installation of packages
provided by the project.
The XML database provides maintainers with a mechanism for the
specification of inter-package dependencies; this permits configuration
of any package, such that the end user may elect to install just that
specific package, leaving mingw-get to ensure that all dependencies will
be automatically satisfied at installation time.
A graphical user interface is planned as a future enhancement.
mingw-get is free software.
