> It is quite nice to be able to build everything completely from source in one place.  This allows Windows software distributors to have more control over PlatformToolsets to reduce the need for distributing multiple merge modules.  Some companies also have policies that they can only distribute software that they built completely from source.

conan.io allows to build everything from sources as well

>>> Right now https://github.com/peavo/WinCairoRequirements is the best maintained repository containing all the requirements, even if Per isn’t maintaining it any more.  If you fork it and add fixes, then yours would become the best maintained repository of those requirements.  I think it would be great if you did this.
>> It may make sense to use conan.io to fetch dependencies. There are ready to use packages for ICU, libpng, libjpeg-turbo, openssl, libcurl, sqlite. At least this approach allow to decentralize maintenance and compilation of binaries for each individual library.

I was thinking about making a WinCairo org on GitHub and then pushing the contents of that repo to it but I wanted to ask beforehand.
