we are happy that you like Gpg4win!

(Please note that in addition to unpaid contributions a number of people have 
sponsored or contracted Gpg4win and GnuPG development in the past, which 
allowed the companies g10code, Intevation and others to work on this in the 
last 20 years
A small part of history of this is here
  https://wiki.gnupg.org/Gpg4win under Contracts
so a lot of thanks goes to those "funders" as well. :) )

As far as I know a Debian GNU/Linux distribution is used for building.
