R. David Murray added the comment:

Well, making the build process more automated would help us, so if someone wants to help make that kind of thing happen it will probably be well received.  The platform installer builds (OSX, Windows) are tricky things, though, and a fair amount of knowledge is unfortunately locked up (currently) in Steve and Ned's brains.  It would indeed be good to make that not so (bus factor, if nothing else), so support from additional people willing to put in effort on installer builds will (I'm assuming) be welcome. But, since anything along those lines would require additional time from Steve and Ned, it isn't obvious how best to go about it.

I haven't looked at your linked article, but there might be alternate pathways to your goal based on starting from the source and producing your own installers or embedded python installation.
