thank you for providing WIN tinderboxes.

Unfortunately currently the situation is a little worrying. We have very 
few WII Master testers (pls see reporter-table):
and we should try to waste as few as many time as possible. For me it's 
annoying to have to check every day various folders whether we have new 
builds. currently I mostly search in vain, and sometimes I find 
something I can't use; how can I create a parallel installation with 
"master~2011-11-28_12.06.44_libodev35.msi"? I do not know. And what 
might be the difference to builds from older "MinGW_cross-compilation"? 
Those "portable" builds would have been very useful, if they would have 
had a better quality.

What I need are reliable win builds 1 per day as we had on 
Windows_2008R2/, that can be used for 3.5 pre release tests in an 
effective way, and IMHO manpower should be concentrated on providing 
builds here.

Everything else might have some value, but from QA point of view we have 
to do a cost/benefit calculation.

Kind regards
