#690: GRASS GIS 8 in OSGeo4W NG

 The GRASS GIS devs are preparing the release of GRASS GIS 8.

 With the upcoming new version in mind, I would like to discuss how we can
 get it into OSGeo4W.

 Personally, I could imagine packages similar to QGIS (but not as many):

 grass (refering to the current stable (point) release )
 grass-rel (nightly build of the release branch)
 grass-ltr (refering to the legacy release, we do not have a concept of
 LTR/LTS right now (would become 7.8 once 8.0 is released))
 grass-dev (nightly build of the develpment branch)

 But here we are open for discussions, and solutions like with GRASS GIS 6
 and GRASS GIS 7 are of course thinkable as well!

 I am willing to contribute (in fact I tried to create a grass-dev package
 here: https://github.com/ninsbl/OSGeo4W/tree/grass_dev_workflows),
 where I tried to build the package with GH workflows. So, I would try to
 prepare PRs. Unfortunately, I cannot figure out what the entrypoint for
 packaging is in https://github.com/jef-n/OSGeo4W (I am more or less bound
 to GH actions), so I would need some help to get started.

 Hope we can solve that together somehow...
