Thanks for your reply.
I did think about using that in trunk, as was suggested by senshi in one
of my forum posts:
However, it is my understanding that I would then need to follow the
instruction in the "SubversionBuildInstructions" Wiki page at
This seems rather involved, so before I commit time to this, I wanted to
be certain that 4.1 was not imminent.
Since it is clear now that I should just bring the ringding branch down
to my dev platform, am I correct that I would need to follow the
instructions to build it per the wiki instructions, at the URL, above?
Can you clarify what I am to do if it is not per that wiki page?
I don't mind putting in the time to work with the trunk build...provided
I am going down the right path to build it, to begin with.
