Owner: changed from Antoine Martin to Smo
Summary: packaging for mingwpackaging for mingw64 / MSYS2

Python build changes mostly completed in r19684.
We can now install xpra locally from an MSYS2 shell with:

rm -fr dist/*
python ./setup.py clean
python ./setup.py install --prefix=./dist --share=share/xpra --with-scripts
rsync -rplogt dist/* ${MINGW_PREFIX}/

Still TODO:

  • install both python2 and python3 builds?
  • figure out the dependencies we want to declare (ie: not opencv..)
  • create some packages for the most important python dependencies (those should be easy): rencode, lz4, PyOpenGL + PyOpenGL_accelerate, cryptography
  • fix audio subprocess command failures

@smo: can you help with any of this?
