This comment is not helpful.  Clearly we would like to test
everything, but in some cases it is not possible.  Most Pidgin
developers do not have access to Windows, or don't have access to
Windows on personal machines.

John's other option would have been to not produce a Windows installer
at the same time as the source and Linux Pidgin 2.7.0 was released, in
which case we'd all have inboxes full of Windows users crying that
they can't download the "latest" version.  None of them would read the
messages already on the list, either.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
