Re: MinGW compilation errors due to strcasecmp

Yes, I think so. The purpose is to list the changes, and in particular
the fixes that a minor release brings. In your case, all it needs
to say is that it fixes a build issue on MinGW when using the latest
MinGW headers.

You just need to go to the PR database on bugzilla:
  - Create an account if not already done;
  - Log in
  - Create a PR:
      * Subject (Eg): GDB 7.12 build failure with latest MinGW headers
      * Body (Eg): Copy-paste the error you got
  - Mark the PR as fixed in GDB 7.12.1:
      * Change the target milestone to 7.12.1
      * Change the status to fixed
      * Add a URL to the gdb-patches discussions where the fix
        was discussed and accepted
