I hope there's no problem with "talk pages" in bug tracker.

Anyway, setting up the environment is a real pain (be it for own demerits, or just because I couldn't figure out instructions).
Then I was surprised I just had to run msys.bat via VC developer console to have everything perfectly configured.

I'd personally put this on the top, but I'm afraid I might be missing something.

Also, you could mention MSYS2 exist alongside MSYS.
And speaking of this, mentioning you only require mingw32-gcc, msys-base and msys-mktemp packages.

Usual wikis have talk pages you know.
And trac seems to have "TracIdeas"
