I found it fairly easy just to read the existing tests, and test/*.lua.

Yes. Compiling monotone on Windows requires MinGW, which provides bash
and gnu coreutils. So just pretend you are on a POSIX system.

No, we officially support MinGW and Cygwin. But that doesn't mean you
have to run tests there. I (and a couple other people) will run the
testsuite on MinGW and Cygwin, and fix/report any problems.

On the other hand, some tests don't work on MinGW; that's what
"skip_if(ostype == "Windows")" is for. It exits a test with a
non-failure status.

Contrib stuff could be limited to non-MinGW, but it would be nice if
that were not the case.
