We have details on how to build with Mingw/Msys on Windows on an Amazon

Err. It might not be very hard but it certainly is time consuming. And that for
people not caring about windows.
If there were usable, regularly refreshed, instances out there'd it'd be
slightly less bad. But this still by far the most annoying and intrusive
platform to care about.
If someone volunteered to pay for the storage, I'd be prepared to make
some time to create an AMI to reduce the startup time dramatically.
Basically it would be "boot the AMI and start testing your patches". I'd
even make it as friendly as possible for people who don't like to get
too far from unix-ish environments.
