Windows build slaves needed

Hello,

Our existing Windows build slaves are not operational any more since half
a year and it's really a problem to not have the automatically running
tests, e.g. I discovered yesterday that one of the tests was broken under
Windows for quite some time and we didn't even notice it.

While I'll try to setup a cross-compiling build on Travis, it still won't
be possible to run the tests there, so having our own build slaves would
still be preferable. If anybody has an always on Windows machine which
could be used for it, it would be really great if you could help the
project by installing a buildbot slave on it.

If you're interested, the instructions for doing this are at

http://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Development:_BuildbotOnWindowsXp

and more information about build is at

http://wiki.wxwidgets.org/Development:_Buildbot

Please let us know if you can set up buildbot builds, thanks in advance!

No, not at all. In fact, if we want to use recent MSVC versions, it can't
be XP as they don't support it.

Of course, if somebody is interested in setting up XP build slave to test
that XP is still supported, it would be useful too, but a slave using
recent MSVC under Windows 7/8 would be at least as useful.
