I second the nomination of Colomban, assuming he's willing/interested.
It definitively takes someone with the eye for perfection and great
knowledge to handle this.

I would like to volunteer as a normal developer/committer, but not as
the lead/maintainer. I can also help with investigating and managing
bugs and so forth. However, as I've made it known previously, I think
it would be *really* helpful for current and future development of Geany
to move towards the simpler and more accessible GitHub/Git combination.

I would also volunteer for this, if no one else more qualified steps up.
I've built Geany a few times on Windows and I do still have access to
Win7 on my laptop. Unfortunately, I'm not very familiar, as you
mentioned, with the process used by Geany for packaging the Windows
build (installer, bundled GTK+, etc).
