If you could drop us an email at kde-promo at kde.org each time you know when
your next release is coming out then we can do one of the following:

- In the main SC release announcement/dot article either state that Windows
builds are also released or are expected within [insert timeframe]
- If there will be a longer delay (maybe for a major release?) we can perhaps
put out a short dot article when the release is made - this one probably more
for the major releases...

Same would apply to Mac builds of course (in case anyone on this list is
involved with those?)
