Can I replace the gcc, and along with all other binaries, in MSYS2 minGW64 with the MinGW64 Project

Can I replace the gcc, and along with all other binaries too, in MSYS2 minGW64 with ones by MinGW64 Project

Can i safely replace the gcc, if asked, telling its version:

Code:
gcc.exe (Rev2, Built by MSYS2 project) 6.2.0
Copyright (C) 2016 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO

with this version:

Code:
gcc.exe (x86_64-posix-seh-rev0, Built by MinGW-W64 project) 7.2.0
Copyright (C) 2017 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO
warranty; not even for MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

and also along with all its package members in as such ?
