What if I want to submit a patch and I am working on Windows ?
Switching to Mac OS X is my best option ? I am not currently working
on any Windows specific issue, but I wonder that how the others submit
the windows-port patches without first passing all regression tests ?

Maybe --tolerance can be allowed ?

Is it possible to contact who setup the Windows build slaves ?

Should I submit one since I have all artifacts - test logs, fonts
which fail the tests, etc.
