Some years ago, Claudio Bley ported notmuch to Windows [1]. Looking at
github [2], it looks like that project is no longer active. I have
copied Claudio in case he has more up to date information.

The easy path would presumably be to use WSL(2?). I have seen discussion
of that in various web searches, but I don't have any personal
experience with it (and iirc, it needs a newer Windows?).
