I agree that this would be useful to include. Since it's fairly independent of other projects and small we might just need to drop it's files into a folder. Source is available if we want to build it.

Specifically it looks like we could really help by including the Python SAGA bindings so that QGIS Sextante plugin works with SAGA on windows. https://github.com/polymeris/qgis/wiki/How-to-install-the-SAGA-Python-Bindings http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/saga-gis/wiki/Compiling%20SAGA%20Python%20Bindings%20on%20Windows

AFAIK py bindings are useless for Sextante

It looks like this ticket could be closed, since I see SAGA 2.0.8-3 available (thanks Victor!). (Note that SAGA 2.1.0 was released just under a month ago, 2013-07-02).

One thing that can be improved before closing this out is to add a Start menu item through a postinstall hook. Currently, it appears that I need to open an OSGeo4W shell and type the command "saga_gui" to start SAGA.

A good example is in qgis-x.y.z-r.tar.bz2 in: etc/postinstall/qgis.bat
