Re: [Mingw-users] [PATCH] Support MSYS2

In all three of my msys2 XXX_shell.bat shells, uname -o answers Msys.
in msys-1, uname -o answers Msys

The query that gets you to mingw32 is "uname -s"

address@hidden MSYS ~
$ uname -s

address@hidden MINGW32 ~
$ uname -s

address@hidden MINGW64 ~
$ uname -s

In Mingw/MSYS from
address@hidden ~
$ uname -s

In Cygwin it looks like so:

address@hidden ~
$ uname -o

address@hidden ~
$ uname -s

This does not feel correct as a quick glance. Are you sure you
understand what you are doing?

In normal operation, I would have assumed that msys2 returns
mingw-something and that any msys mode was a special case for
building binaries with the cygwin/posix emulation layer, but
you are adding msys to a bunch of places which are mingw-only.
So, it all feels fishy.

Also, how does this affect msys1?
