[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?

+1 (at least)

The narrowmindedness of some of the young whippersnappers never ceases 
to amaze me (and not in a good way :-( ).

Having info that is outdated (as subsequent developments have 
improved/replaced it) is one thing, but what one might consider "hugely 
irrelevant" is a completely different issue and "highly" depended on 
subjective needs and purposes...
