          Issue ID: 18413
           Summary: Document how to setup/run DMD test suite on WINDOWS
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86
               URL: https://wiki.dlang.org/Building_under_Windows
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: dlang.org

Running the DMD test suite on windows seems to be very rare and documentation
appears to be non-existent.  The following page
(https://wiki.dlang.org/Building_under_Windows) would be a good place to hold
such documentation.

I think the big issue with it is how to install Make/BASH.  I've tried a few
times to get these installed but failed, however, I think I may have been using
a version that was too old.  I'd ask that someone who has successfully gotten
the test suite to run on windows share the steps they used on the wiki page.
