There are already several places with Emacs 22 binaries for Windows:

Ralf Angeli already provides a version bundled with AUCTeX from time
to time at <ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/auctex/> (AFAICS, this the only
one with a gpg signature).  The overhead wrt to AUCTeX (~3 MB) is
negligible in case you don't use AUCTeX.

IIRC Drew Adams uploads binaries to
<http://ourcomments.org/Emacs/EmacsW32.html>.  Then there are at least
two projects on sourceforge.net (ntemacs, nqmacs).

If there is a need for more frequently updated binaries (say weekly),
they should be places on alpha.gnu.org, e.g. in /gnu/emacs/windows/.

Bye, Reiner.
