You, persnickety? Never! Pedantic, perhaps. I'm actually entirely
pleased to _do_ the install/build documentation for subversion. Maybe
this would be a good time to start using external contributors to
review documentation contributions? It has to make sense to people
_outside_ of Laszlo Systems, anyways. I have two volunteers lined up
to help test this change, so I'll use them as de facto documentation
The current build instructions are in (ahem) three places:
http://wiki.openlaszlo.org/SubversionBuildInstructions -- these are
the build instructions Jim and I have been working on for Subversion
http://wiki.openlaszlo.org/Build_Instructions -- these are the
somewhat older build instructions for builds based on a source
http://svn.openlaszlo.org/openlaszlo/trunk/building-lps.html -- these
are the instructions that are in the source distribution itself.
So, John, don't do anything yet.
