Another way is: Fixing Tests, that currently fail on Windows.

The MinGW Cross-Compiler is used to build the Binaries 

I'm building native Windows-EXE using the Cross-Compiler-Packages from
Hans ( )

A recent Example was the failure of "ntdll.dll:exception" on Win95-WinME
- Run the Test on Windows to find the Problem 
- Fix the Problem 
- Build and run the Wine-Test: "make -C dlls/ntdll/tests/ test"
- Build the Windows Test: "make -C dlls/ntdll/tests/ crosstest"
- Run "ntdll_crosstest.exe" on all available Windows-Versions
  (I'm using qemu for this)
- Create the "useful_name.diff"
- Mail the Patch to wine-patches
- Wait for Commit
