those of you working with Docker & WSL will know, that building a project using the WSL's filesystem is much, much faster than using the Windows filesystem. With is should now possible to save your project in \\WSL$\Ubuntu\home\[...] and use a docker-image to build your code there. - It might be a good Idea to place your Workspace on the Windows filesystem, though.

I'm using the word "should", because since I wrote the original patch, I migrated to Linux. I did some testing in a VM, but not very extensive. Thus if anyone is using CDT's docker build support on Windows, I'd love to get some feedback.

This patch should also improve pulling includes from an image into the host's file system and thus making the indexer very happy. I personally build almost all of my projects using Cmake and getting all necessary include paths and macro definitions using the Built-In-Compiler-Settings and Compilation-Database-Parser providers. This allows me keep the maintenance low, while happily configuring everything using CMake or switching to the docker-image with the necessary cross-compiler.  If there is interest, I'd be willing to write a few words on how to set those up.
