I made a script and to generate a Geany installer. I had to make a few 
patches to Geany and it's probably not exactly stable/release-worthy, 
but it seems to work OK here, if not a bit slow.

I tested the 32 and 64-bit installers on Windows 10 and also the 32-bit 
one on Windows Vista.

Branch is here:


The script is in the branch, here:


With a MSYS2 install and desired toolchain installed in it, after 
possibly editing the top of `scripts/win32-installer-msys2.sh` for a 
couple paths, run from appropriate 32 or 64-bit msys2 shell in a 
directory where the build cruft can go. After too many minutes it will 
output installer .exe in the current dir. Pass `i686` or `x86_64` as 
argument depending on the output architecture (default is i686). See top 
of the `win32-installer-msys2.sh` script for more details.

Please excuse my lack of Bash scripting skills.
