I'm interested in continuing the work done in last year's Google Summer of Code configuration management project by kkremitzki. I've been in contact with him about continuing this project. However, my background is mostly in Windows environments. He suggested that I split my attention half and half between Linux and Windows so that I could first learn the details about FreeCAD's ecosystem on Linux and then, using this knowledge, I will spend time focusing on Windows and ultimately make improvements to the new user and new developer experience on both platforms.
I am nearing completion of my Google Summer of Code proposal. The Linux portion of the project is fleshed out, but I'm looking for suggestions on what improvements I could do for Windows.
I have a few ideas I'm considering and would appreciate feedback. I see there are Anaconda and Chocolatey packages available. I wanted to create PowerShell scripts or something more native to Windows for installation and management of FreeCAD and its dependencies.
Also, I'm also interested in packaging libMesh, an LGPL 2.1 c++ finite element library, for Windows and Debian and adding it as an optional FreeCAD integration.
