Sorry for the late response, but I prepared a patch for
mingw32-filesystem to add -debug subpackage support. Is it okay to
Yes, but I think we should only commit this to Rawhide.
I've also added a patch for one of my packages to indicate the
needed for all mingw32 packages to get -debug subpackage support. It
basically consists of two extra lines.
Got a patch for mingw32-example.spec?
One thing I noticed while preparing this is that there's an
buildsystem project  which has basically forked all our work and
added more features and packages to it. I wonder why this fork was done
and why features (like this -debug subpackage support) haven't been
proposed upstream (to us) sooner? Several packages there also have their
ChangeLog stripped away so the history can't be viewed anymore..
Fridrich has posted about it on this list a couple of times I think.
But yes, it'd be nice to unify the packages more.
