I suppose we could try to use ASF hardware to assist a volunteer that
wants to build Windows binaries, but AFAIK, the position of the
project has not changed about our desire to take any kind of ownership
of said binaries. Also, assuming that these binaries include things
like Neon, libintl and BDB I assume they still cannot be distributed
from ASF hardware and would have to be hosted elsewhere for download.
