mostly yes. we also have a wiki page for the setup of the reference
platform here: https://github.com/mapserver/mapserver/wiki/Test-Suite
. Note however that our strict requirements on the testing platform
can probably be relaxed for pgrouting (The output of the image
generating tests varies subtly depending on platforms architecture,
compiler versions, compiler flags, etc... The output of text/xml
generating tests may vary depending on what features are configured)

I'll let Tamas comment on the windows part.
For linux, the testsuite could be run on travis-ci (you can find the
configuration for it in the .travis.yaml file in our repo). We/I
switched to using a self hosted jenkins instance as the travis service
tended to be a bit more unreliable (false positives generated by the
travis infrastructure rather than our own code) and slower (as the
system dependencies need to be re-installed for each run. travis runs:
~4min30sec; jenkins:~1min30sec)
