If you can mutter the proper svn command to me or post the actual diff file
here, I can get that added to both MinGW and native Fedora packages. Other
packagers might appreciate it, too

I know of thing else regarding Windows that *needs* to happen

I'm working on fully automating that, so all you have to do is tag the
commit in the repo and it will do all the releasing for you. Look for a PR
in the next few days to handle that. Once that's done a release will be as
simple as:

git tag v4.1.1
git push --tag
