Haha, just add him to your email blacklist, saves a lot of trouble ;-)

For the record, the releases are not available because no-one is capable 
rather than motivated to produce them.

Having built a couple, Windows releases are a royal PITA even if 
everything goes smoothly...

Now Michael, unless you're prepared to build these releases yourself, I 
less than politely suggest you STFU...


PS: For the non-trolls on this list, I believe Sidnei da Silva is 
thinking about taking up this painful task... send him beer/love/money 
and he might be further persuaded...

PPS: We all might also like to thank Tim Peters for doing such a good 
job of building Windows releases in the past that no-one noticed the 
delay between the source and binary release...
