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?

  • r20022: use mingw packages for some python dependencies
  • for python-lzo see ticket:1044#comment:9
  • would be very useful to have libyuv (as per ticket:678#comment:40 - much easier now that libyuv builds the DLL by default and without errors) - every other installation step is now fully automated, see wiki/Building/MSWindows
  • pyopengl_accelerate can be built from source against python 3.7 (with a recent enough version of Cython), but only from a git copy (source here: https://github.com/mcfletch/pyopengl) and after removing the ".c" file to ensure they get re-generated - since the pyopengl version should match, build that from the same source tree (just remove the SGIX directories as those contain the "async" keyword which is now illegal - we don't need those anyway)
  • lz4 is crucial, we need the workaround from r20171 (ticket:1929#comment:1) so it gets packaged properly (I'm not blaming cx_Freeze for this particular breakage)

python-zeroconf (original feature ticket: #1644) dropped support for python2 in version 0.20 (see TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for &: 'str' and 'int' and python2-zeroconf: updated to 0.20.0, but 0.20.0 dropped python2 support), but something is not right and using easy_install will pickup the latest (broken) version, so we have to be specific about it: r20193. No such problems with python3.
