I've begun testing fresh installations using mingw-get and found it difficult to guess that I needed to mingw-get install mingw32-base and msys-base. Attached is a patch to allow install msys and install mingw or install mingw32 for each of the base pacakges.

    I've no issue with this, but I'll defer the final decision to Chuck, who has taken the lead in specifying these package structures.

    BTW, the tracker is set to assign keithmarshall the ticket for a Category of mingw-get. I don't know if you want to keep it that way or not, so I'll let you update the auto-assignment.

    Fine by me. Do you want to check this in and publish the results, or do you want me to do so?

    Why don't you handle this one. I'll eventually get around to being able to do it but I'm not there yet.
