so what is your problem?

you really expect from upstream providing binraies when they are even 
not capable to tag source minor version when you can download 
pre-compiled binaries anyways?

honestly - be happy that someone invests time to ensure it's buildable 
at all on windows especially these days where you can use WSL, 
containers and virtual machines

no need for native windows binaries at all
