Would you like to give a few sentences on where you feel the windows
most immediate work? Then windows users could look toward seeing if
tackling that area
was within their expertise (or potential to learn enough once a target
area is known).
I'd like to build up enough windows background to help with sbcl but
would need to educate
myself I'm sure. On linux a git pull, build, and test is super easy.
Getting windows builds that easy would be a start.
My interest is common lisp as a language to develop plug-ins for windows
graphics programs (probably
via python glue).
