I'm seconding Patrick. And especially you Al, you are doing an awesome work with FreeIPMI!

I personally wouldn't mind trying to get FreeIPMI to work in Windows,
however I've never had access to Windows running on an IPMI capable
server.  It's something my company just doesn't do.

So I just don't have the capability to do it.  I have always hoped that
someone from the community would be able to add support.
It's great to see that this thread is still alive.
I've some Windows server that are IPMI capable, under the hand.
And I'm seriously considering the option of a mingw port of FreeIPMI, and would be pouring some resources into this effort.
A member of my team very quickly tried a compilation, but it has been so miserably failing that he thrown the towel almost instantly...

So, would you be considering a mingw effort?
How could we help and synchronize?
