It's a significant amount of work, either way. It will be larger for you
when you do it the first time; after that, it will be the same amount of
work for you that it would be for me. It will be easier for you than
for me as you won't be acting under time pressure (whereas additional
actions from me will delay the entire Python release, which, due to
timezones, already significantly suffers from the need to create Windows
binaries).

I'm not sure whether you are requesting these for yourself or for
somebody else. If for somebody else, that somebody else should seriously
consider building Python himself, and publishing the result.

Regards,
Martin
