Can you not just rename the repository on GitHub?

Yes, that is possible. The difference is small in this case (retaining the 1 closed PR fixing a typo; there are no issues), but after looking it up I think renaming is a bit less work than creating a new repo. So I'll rename.

This is done now.

If anyone wants to give it a try, the instructions in README.txt should work for producing working Windows installers. The only thing that's not covered is the install and use of Vagrant itself, because the former is platform-dependent and the latter is basically only the very first terminal line of http://docs.vagrantup.com/v2/getting-started/ (but read on for a bit, it's useful).

Feedback on how to document that repo better are very welcome. I'll be looking at improving the documentation of how to release and what a release manager does as well soon.
