> Hi!
> A customer asked me to smb2-enable winexe from

> Samba-side of things.
> This has a few caveats:
> It can't be tested in autobuild, we don't have Windows around
> The Windows service files are GPLv3 only. Those are 1:1 taken from the
> sourceforge project. The original author seems unreachable, so
> relicensing looks difficult, and I don't feel capable of writing a
> Windows service from scratch.
> It requires mingw to build. We could add mingw to sn-devel, so at
> least the build keeps working.
> As winexe for some scenarious seems highly interesting, I would like
> to get this into mainline Samba despite those caveats.
> Comments?
> Thanks, Volker

While this (clearly) passes on Gitlab CI and sn-devel, it fails on
travis CI:  https://travis-ci.org/samba-team/samba/jobs/423489492

Any idea what I need to change in the Travis CI setup to have that
