preCICE and mingw packages

I recently I added the preCICE package to the mingw (msys) environment:

Is it worth adding an MPI compilation flag (mingw currently has msmpi)?:


@rafal Thank you for contributing the package!

MPI communication is very useful to speed-up the intra-participant configuration, so enabling it will definitely pay off.

We don’t have a lot of experience with msmpi, but are definitely aiming to support it. Our long term goal is for preCICE to run natively on Windows and supporting the Microsoft MPI SDK is one item on the TODO list.

Could you try to build the package with MPI enabled?
Every crumb of information helps at this stage.


Pull request accepted (enable mpi):

PETSc should also be added soon (to msys2/mingw64):
