To date, the Open edX devstack has been used almost exclusively on macOS and Linux systems. Recent improvements to Windows and the switch to a Docker-based devstack have made it feasible to get it working on Windows also, but there are still some small issues preventing it from being truly useful yet. We want to resolve these so that developers using Windows as their primary OS can contribute to Open edX just as easily as those on other operating systems.
The tickets in this epic help move us towards this goal without requiring any significant prior knowledge of the Open edX source code or needing any other work to be completed first.
Questions and discussion about devstack on Windows outside the scope of existing tickets in this epic should be directed to the #devstack channel in the Open edX Slack team.
