So the situation is as follows:

The previous builder (DJ Heap?) does not have the time to build the
Win32 binaries anymore.
I, for one, could dedicate a few hours to create the latest ones and the
next ones as well. It does not seem too much complicated to build them.
What I'm lacking is a description of what to run and in what order.
I mean, there are Python scripts related to win32 in the build folder,
but I am not sure what they are doing. Having a simple "step by step"
guide would actually save time.
Is there a way to ask the previous builder to at least document this?
