I would describe the problems with the Windows installers as lack of
interest by the developers, not problems with installer building
automation.

We don't have any more Windows interest for Zope 3, but we have no
problem creating windows releases. That's because we made the barrier
very low.

One way or another, the best I can propose right now is to integrate
the building of the Windows installer into a buildbot, either ZC's or
Enfold Systems'.

We already build the nightly Windows Installer for Plone, so it
wouldn't be a big deal to do the same for Zope.

Cool. Then we can just pick up tomorrows output and ship that. ;)
