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.
