Please add Paint.net to the available packages for Windows package manager "Winget"

I too wish for this excellent software to be available on Microsoft's official Windows Package Manager "winget".

The winget community is capable and willing to add applications themselves, but it is currently not possible with paint.net because paint.net installers are released within .zip files.

Please consider releasing paint.net installers as .EXE or .MSI so that the winget community can add it to winget.

 

Link to github request for paint.net to be added to winget:

I think winget just needs to add ZIP support. I'm already publishing numerous package types, with long builds times and gigabytes to upload. It's already a lot to keep track of. All they have to do is unzip the EXE and do what they'd normally do for an EXE.
