Greetings, All!

If I understand correctly, mintty is based on PuTTY code.
However, the PuTTY terminal capabilities are slightly different than of xterm,
and terminfo database have separate profiles for putty/-vt100/-256color.
My question is, what TERM should I use when advertising my caps to a remote
So far, I've had success with xterm-256color, I'm just wondering, if I should
change it?
