I'm exited! A docker'machine hyper-V driver...

That´s good news, because Hyper-V tends to cause less trouble on windowes than virtualbox. Will test it and keep you posted...

Having talked with Moses (vauxoo) bilateral about his solution further, I would like to gather support for the following attempt (ATTEMPT = TEST = TRY = EXPERIMENT): 

- Transform travis to use docker
- Run travis2docker (or a small modification of it) to create DEV docker files in repo
- Start a dev environment with docker build . && docker run and easily mount the working tree into it's place

Best advantage: Binaries for almost every platform are available in the docker ecosystem.
Manual maintenance can focus on the Travis files, the rest is already scripted...

@Moses: when talking about mounting instead of syncing via a network protocol via the docker volume command (read: let the docker host take care of this) we cannot AFAIK let the docker be the source, because docker gives precedence to the host files system and eventually deletes anything that was present in this path on the docker itself. So we might have a closer look on how we could include the git proxy workflow nevertheless. It's important though, that a local git can be easily referenced, so no internet connection is needed...

Thanks for your questions, if any!

Best, David

Let's turn to for the tooling discussion, anyone who can moderate or better elaborate the facts, pros and cons, than I'm probably capable of: please be welcome!

Inputs from akretion and vauxoo are very promising, we need to decide on the right dosis of tooling for this specific purpose, and assure plattfrom independence.

I just took a closer look at it.
Words like "Recommended Editor" are notorious for triggering epic flame wars, such as emacs vs vim ;-)

Based off on and Daniel's suggestion, I made a recompilation here of recommended contributor tooling:

It's WIP, but with your feedback, I'm commited to make it 1.0 at the indicated detail level in no time. I hope it might also trigger or revive connected discussions, such as repo layout. ( - For my taste, I invite you to discuss directly on the github issue to not bother the less involved.

I'll reference also a second mail to follow, with a proposal for modernizing informal communication with the help of
