I did write to RMS, and he replied promptly but tersely that he
doesn't have anything to do with making or distributing Windows
binaries. He didn't say who *does* distribute those binaries.

However, your reference to the bug-gnu-emacs email address got me
thinking, so I visited the gnu.emacs.bug newsgroup, and found this
message posted yesterday by Kevin Rodgers:

Jason Rumney sent me the precompiled Windows binaries for Emacs 21.3:

       4402129 Nov 11 00:07 emacs-21.3-barebin-i386.tar.gz
      13842323 Nov 11 00:55 emacs-21.3-bin-i386.tar.gz
      19473545 Nov 11 00:06 emacs-21.3-fullbin-i386.tar.gz
       3993557 Nov 11 00:06 emacs-21.3-leim.tar.gz
       7138900 Nov 11 00:04 emacs-21.3-lisp.tar.gz
       1854180 Nov 11 00:06 emacs-21.3-undumped-i386.tar.gz

and I put them on  He already sent
signatures to the maintainers list.


Thanks, Kevin and Eli, for your help with my question. I got the file.
