I'm not sure how can I answer this question. I certainly don't object
to this, and would love to see it coming on-line. But I don't think I
can help doing this in any way, except encouraging and perhaps helping
by advice with some initial build issues.

I agree. There's one complication: there are 2 divergent MinGW
distributions; most (all?) Linux distributions pick up the one that is
different from the one I use. So it could be that the problems I find
will not be discovered even by such a bot. Still, I think doing that
would be useful.
