4511: Add documentation on how to set up a development environment under Windows 10's WLS


What's the URL of the page containing the problem?


Describe the problem and any recommendations below.

Windows 10 has the miraculous ability to run bash, and we've had several people report that they can get a Review Board development environment set up under it. This is fantastic, as it means we don't need to get Windows users to run a full-blown VM just to hack on Review Board.

We should add some documentation on how to get that development environment set up on Windows 10.

Please provide any additional information below.
