I think Rod already has it all building so he believes the work is mostly done. But that still leaves a lot of testing and getting Santuario dealt with.

Our need for this is strictly Windows, so this is all connected to updating our build process to try and automate all the fixes we have to apply to openssl, curl, etc, none of which provide usable build scripts for Windows, and updating to a newer Microsoft compiler. It's a long way off.

Probably Rod updating build instructions with whatever he changed. Those instructions are for the project to keep track of what we're doing.

Send something to our dev list and Rod can provide them, I don't really know where they are.
