github/Windows-v2.6.5-7 is the most recent active branch. The older windows_port ones were developed in SVN, and the merge commits did not properly record which changes from trunk/ were incorporated into the branch. Therefore, they could not be merged back into trunk/master without potentially losing information. I kept them after the reposurgeon SVN-to-Git conversion, but they are probably not useful anymore.

If you mean the Windows builder in Buildbot, it never completely worked. I believe that the Windows builds listed on the NUT homepage were all done on another system.

> I couldn't find any info about proper environment to build Windows version. Does anybody know what the version of MinGW has been installed on eaton-win2003server-x86? And what versions of libraries such cppunit, libusb, regex, snmp should be used?

Hopefully someone else can shed some light on that.
