    Hi.

    First of all, thanks for maintaining this project.

    The binaries seems to contain debugging info. Using 'strip' on them reduces its size dramatically. emacs.exe, for instance, goes from 10.6 down to 7.1 MBs. This saves about 1 MB on the zipped package.

    Regards.

      That seems well worth considering. OTOH, as this is not an official release of Emacs, it might be better to leave the debugging info intact to aid debugging in case of crashes. I'll think about it.
