With this approach you can build a windows binary on Linux using mxe MXE (M cross environment).
You can find the build script and a README file in the ms-windows/mxe directory.
With this approach you can cross build a Windows binary on Linux using MXE (M cross environment).
You can find the build script and a README.md file in the ms-windows/mxe directory.

For now, Python buildings cannot be built with mxe.

=== Initial setup ===
=== Building with Docker ===

This is the simplest way, but you need to have Docker installed
on your system.

You can use a Docker image to cross build QGIS by calling
the script ms-windows/mxe/build.sh from the root directory of QGIS repository.

=== Building without Docker ====

This requires to install mxe toolchain on your system and build
all dependencies by yourself.

==== Initial setup ====

Please follow the instructions on mxe website to setup your building toolchain http://mxe.cc/,
take note of the path where you have installed mxe.

=== Building the dependencies ===
