[fpc-devel] How do I go about volunteering as a "release builder", so that we can get rid of the objectively untrue, misleadingly worded "There is no native compiler available for x86_64 Win64. You have to use a cross-compiler" notice on the FPC website?

porting from TP/BP 6/7 is still fairly relevant... maybe not in your part of the 
universe but it is definitely relevant for others... in one development 
directory here there are well over 500 pas and inc files needing porting... no 
clue at this time the number of LoC in those files but it is a lot more than 
those with the porting task really want to know about else it set a daunting 
task ahead of them...
