Congratulations for such initiative. Very nice. I hope this helps
Lazarus/FPC to get more visibility.

Just one point: I'd strongly recommend you provide a build with
stable/production versions of Lazarus and FreePascal. They are the best the
Lazarus/FPC team can offer and they have production quality. This will
indeed help people giving it a try to get more confident with Lazarus/FPC.
