Glad to hear that you are interested in validation aspects for this feature. We are also interested.
Not to cover the same areas, can we share general broader categories for validation.

I'm happy to help with documentation for this and doing testing, maybe some packaging. I can
certainly host installers if they need to be separate.

I would guess it best to start with testing first and building up documentation from there?
Perhaps this needs its own thread running now?

4.4 is in feature freeze, so no new features will be added. I think its fair to debate if
this is a feature in that sense. It seems like minor changes and the addition of a few scripts,
making it a simple change in my view. It would be great to be able to announce this, but for
it to be part of a release i think we need a couple of other things to be done. The most prominent
are, packaging, testing and documentation.

If we want to ship this with 4.4 and announce that CS now runs on windows we need to have
the installation manual covered at least.

We can't expect our users to build it themselves on windows. So we need some kind of packaging
that people can install on their windows server.

We need to automagically verify that these changes aren't affected by future changes. I would
expect to see the packaging and functional tests on starting and stopping CS on a windows
host as part of the automated test procedure. I'd be happy to work with you to set it up on

If we can fix these items before the bug fix phase i'd be +1 to include this in the 4.4 release,
but of course this is depending on the consensus in the community. I'm just the RM, not the
guy who decides what goes into a release.
