Martin, maybe we can help you with the installers testing.

While I don't have a clue about compiling complex software in Windows
(and also want to stay away from that), I have a virtualbox with a win
xp in my workstation, so I could try an installer.

Maybe you could put a wiki page somewhere with a small recipe about
what to look when testing an installer, and then produce all the
versions, upload to it, and alert us here. So we go, download one of
them, try it, and then mark it as tested with our name (maybe we can
look after two or three testers per installer).

I don't know if this will be quicker, but surely will lower your
workload regarding this, which is a good thing.
