I suggest we drop the win32-mingw47_developer-build-qtlibinfix-Windows configuration from the CI, and replace it by one utilizing mingw-builds i686-4.9.1-release-posix-dwarf-rt_v3-rev2 . This is in addition with the two win32-mingw48 configurations we already have in the CI system.

We've been releasing Qt 5.0 with mingw-builds x32-4.7.2-release-posix-sjlj-rev8, and at this time also defined it as a 'reference' configuration. However, we've long since upgraded our binary packages to newer mingw-builds packages, for 5.1 with x32-4.8.0-release-posix-dwarf-rev2 , for 5.2 and 5.3 with i686-4.8.2-release-posix-dwarf-rt_v3-rev3 , and finally Qt 5.4 will be packaged with i686-4.9.1-release-posix-dwarf-rt_v3-rev2.

I'd claim that support for mingw-builds x32-4.7.2-release-posix-sjlj-rev8 isn't all that relevant anymore. It also does break already in configurations that we don't test (namely ANGLE). The outdated mingw-w64 headers in this package do however cause problems, as seen in https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/100301/ .
