Windows Build

Hi all,

Just tried to build the latest unstable for Windows but it fails with this

[ 76%] Generating gnucash.appdata.xml
C:/gcdev64/msys2/mingw32/bin/msgfmt.exe: cannot locate ITS rules for
make[2]: *** [gnucash/gnome/CMakeFiles/gnucash-appdata.dir/build.make:61:
gnucash/gnome/gnucash.appdata.xml] Error 1
make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:7919:
gnucash/gnome/CMakeFiles/gnucash-appdata.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [Makefile:163: all] Error 2
*** Error during phase build of gnucash-git: ########## Error running make
-j 1  *** [15/17]

Poked around but could not get it to work so thought I would see what the
build server logs yield but that has not worked since 25/02/2018 so no help

So I downloaded that build but it fails with a missing
libboost_date_time-mt.dll so if the above is fixed it still might not work.



PS: Is it possible to clear out some of the old logs, maybe separate
sub-directories for each maint, master, unstable and docs. Also the maint
build is complaining about certificates and gives up.
