hint for future Zim package maintainer for Windows: Pyinstaller bug #4125 is resolved; was blocking us


A while ago I stepped down as Windows package maintainer for Zim. ( https://zim.glump.net/misc/brendan-kidwell-stepping-down-as-zim-windows-package-maintainer/ )

As I stated in that mailing list post, I was blocked by https://github.com/pyinstaller/pyinstaller/issues/4125 , among other things.

Someone brought up in the that Zim chat room a few days ago that #4125 in Pyinstaller has been resolved. I don't know exactly how much work needs to be done to build an installer building process for Zim 0.70+ on Windows, and I don't have the energy to work on it. I'm just passing on to everyone that this blocker is resolved.

If you're thinking of trying to build an installer for Zim on Windows, look at my previous work in the /windows folder of the Zim source tree and feel free to ask me specific questions here or on IRC. ( https://zim.glump.net/irc-chat-room/ -- North America business hours and evenings are best for me.)
