I checked the tree and Corinna cleaned up some a few years ago.

I already checked winsup/doc/ and there were no other substantive uses of MinGW 
unless you would prefer *ALL* mentions of MinGW be suffixed with -w64.

I did not look closely at cygwin-htdocs, as git complained when I tried to 
update, so I wiped that repo, but it looks like links.html and categories in 
packaging-hint-files.html which includes Mingw, needed updated.

Is there a definitive file with a list of all currently valid categories in 
calm, cygport, setup, or shared somewhere?
I may get to reclone, check, and patch htdocs later.
