Subject Re: Git Workflow on Windows

Microsoft offers free MSDN licenses to Apache committers.  The request
process is documented here:

https://s.apache.org/BDIK

You'll need to be able to authenticate with your ASF account to access that
link.

This means that for committers who don't usually work on Windows, you have
an option for running a Windows VM at no personal cost, in case you want to
verify a patch running on Windows.  The approval process for the license
can take a long time though.

>From past experience working on Windows compatibility for other projects
like Hadoop and ZooKeeper, it's very common for software developed
initially on Linux to assume '/' as the file path separator, and it looks
like that's what is happening here.  If DistributedLog wants to support
Windows as a development platform, then the effort would involve tracking
down incompatibilities like this and fixing them.

This could be a great area for a developer working on Windows to start
contributing some patches too!
