Hi Bill,

The correct "mainline" branch to use for all platforms (and the one
I have been testing against) is the master branch from this repository:


which is maintained by Evan Martin.  I don't think any other branches
are maintained/code-reviewed/updated as frequently.  I know that
people have been experimenting with improved Windows support elsewhere
but I think that we should go with whatever is eventually merged
into mainline.
