[fpc-devel] I've asked this before, but perhaps I wasn't specific enough that time: what do I *personally*, specifically need to do to ensure that a native Windows 64-bit build winds up on the FPC website for the next release?

Just FYI what Delphi writes in their documentation ( 

On i386 Windows Extended is 80-bit, on x86_64 Linux, i386 macOS and i386 
iOS simulator it's 128-bit and on all other platforms (which includes 
x86_64 Windows) it's 64-bit.

So Delphi went the same way as we did.
