I'll put my hand up for doing the Windows build as well (the x64 buildbot has all the necessary bits and pieces installed). I know some HP people that I could rope in to install the resulting IA64 build and run rt.bat.
Notice that we both look for somebody to build the next 2.6/3.0 betas (see the subject), and the 2.5.3 rc and final release (assuming Anthony still has that plan).
My testing on Itanium is the mere "does it install?", "can I start both cmdline and IDLE?", "is the help file the right one?". The test suite itself will fail/hang - it always did in 2.5.x.
We're not shipping PGO builds for 2.5.x are we?
No. I don't think VS 2003 supported that. I don't do PGO for the AMD64 build of 2.6/3.0, either, because I also have a cross-compilation environment which prevents that.
Martin, not sure if you've had a chance to do anything with the VeriSign certificates? (Ambiguous question mark intended ;-)
Please see the most recent MSI files - they are all signed.
