Official 2.8 Windows installer?

Now that GIMP 2.8 is officially out, shouldn't we (with some urgency) get an official Windows installer for it near the top of the downloads page: http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

We still have the 2.6.12 installer linked.

IIRC Jernej is still busy with creating the installer. Once it is there, the link will be committed to Git - then someone just has to pull and make the site on the webserver.

And what about making life easier for Linux users? There's a PPA that Ubuntu and Mint users can add: ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp (which I just did). I think it's worth adding it to the download page. It's also worth explicitly adding the "Mint" name there along with Ubuntu - it's become quite popular lately.
