"Someone has to do the work" and "be[ing] in charge of the builds"
sort of implies that there's that weird *obligation* to provide the
binaries. If there *is* in fact any obligation, it is certainly
unrelated to Emacs. You seem to think that those who oppose
distributing the binaries do so because of the burden of building
them. At least in my case, the opposition is philosophical/political,
and utterly unrelated with who wil bear the work of producing

If you can set a bot to build the DLLs, the GnuTLS project surely
could, too. And it would be *their* binaries. You can't get more
official than that.
