Are you making the wonderful "*-deps-*.zip" packages?  If so thank you!

I recently convinced the nice IT admin to install Emacs on my Windows work
PC on which I have zero fun rights.  So far, it has been working great in
that it makes it somewhat bearable to use a Windows PC.

If possible, I might humbly request three other dependencies be included
in the future.

  - zip.exe and unzip.exe (Info-Zip, I guess) are used when exporting ODT
    documents with Org and would be nice to include.

  - spellcheckers like hunspell and maybe aspell would be really, really
    nice to have!  It’s admittedly a very soft dependency, but at least when
    you rely on Windows IT Admins, they get a bit confused when you first
    send them to the hunspell github page, only to tell them that the binary
    version can be gotten from Eli’s Sourceforge page...


Don't panic!!!
