[GitHub] brooklyn issue #20: include instructions for building outwith source control
Github user rdowner commented on the issue:
I'd rather not consider this a documentation fail that needs fixed, but a build process that needs fixed. Is there a way to supply sensible defaults for these parameters so that a build from outside source control will just work?
Our primary task at the ASF is to deliver great quality *source releases*. Everything else we deliver is just for our user's convenience (the binary build, the Maven artifacts, etc.) I want to avoid our source release being a second class citizen.
(Aside: do these parameters add value to our build? Should we drop them completely?)
