Making a binary release for windows users is bottlenecked behind Thorvald too
right now. The problem goes something like this:
- It can't be installed on windows unless it's been digitally signed by
some MSFT endorsed signing key.
- Thorvald is the only person with access to the VM and signing key
needed for that.
He was going to see if he could find time to whip one of those out before
he left, but otherwise this is about a week away from happening too.
There may be some way that people can build their own from source or
override the 'security' feature on their windows machine to install
one from someone else, but someone who actually uses windows will
probably have to answer that if you need more details.
[We might want to avoid cc'ing Thorvald on all of these, unless it's
actually *really* important for him to see ... if he has a mountain
of mail to get through when he gets back, that might not be helpful
for getting to the code as quickly as he otherwise might ...]
