  And again, it comes not to doing something, but to maintaining and supporting that. Because otherwise, in a year, only broken links will remind of good intentions, or in the best case, outdated binaries of unknown origin.

  So, however it may seem overcomplicated, more sustained way to get better Windows support is indeed to submit doc patches, cooperate with Win32 maintainer on improving his site/packaging, or start your own
Win32 port project and see if you can do better.

  Anyway, I really hope that I'm wrong and your packaging contribution will be accepted without much hassle, to rejoice of all us, Windows users.

OK, agreed. Where may I find the so-called "Win32 maintainer" to ask about integrating TAP-Win32 drivers and some additions into the package. Does he listens to this list?
