As the release of Emacs-28 is soon, I would like to look for someone to
take over the role of producing windows releases.

I've done this job for quite a while now, since Emacs-25, when I used to
build the releases on windows partition that I had saved on an machine I
use for running Kodi in my living room. Since then, it has gone virtual,
the process has become mostly automatic, dependencies have been included
by default and there is an exe installer.

It is not a huge amount of work to just roll the releases but especially
after the last year, it's a more than I have time for.

In addition, there are a number of things that could be added: an msi or
msix installer, support for native comp. I cannot see having the time
for this into the foreseable future.

If anyone is interested, let me know. Happy to take anyone through the
process and provide as much support as I can.
