Any chance of an update for these?

- mingw64-x86_64-gcc-core
- mingw64-x86_64-gcc-g++

It appears they are both over a year old, which is quite some time for a
compiler. I have some workarounds here in the meantime:

- http://repo.msys2.org/mingw/x86_64
- https://github.com/mstorsjo/llvm-mingw
- https://musl.cc

I normally don't update mingw-w64 compilers unless the cygwin gcc has
stabilized.

Do you need it ASAP? I can work on it soon if required.

I mean isnt that the whole point of Test packages? The way I see it the Test
package should always be matching the major version, and ideally the minor
version.

For even the test version to be literally 2 majors versions back kills any
reason to even have it. It would be better to just remove the test version
altogether and just have current and "prev" if it cant be kept up to date.
On a personal note the optics just look bad. GCC points people to Cygwin:

https://gcc.gnu.org/install/binaries.html

then when the users get here, they find the mingw64-x86_64-gcc-core 7.3 which
is 2 years old:

https://gcc.gnu.org/releases.html
