Referencing packages

Development image

  • Would there be value to a development VM or other type of image to provide a standard environment?
    • currently a Docker exists with the latest build for usage/testing
    • if a VM, what is the minimal sized setup to make it useful/effective
  • Could instructions on the Wiki provide this purpose?
    • See Building on Microsoft Windows.
    • WSL and instructions might provide a development path for MS Windows users.
    • If instructions are enough, would instructions for a user to get and setup a VM or WSL enough to remove need to host a VM?
