Subject Re: [jira] [Created] (COR-22) Do not use within-repository folders for any build-related activity
Date Sat, 10 Jan 2015 14:14:36 GMT
CMake lets you have your build directory anywhere - there's no requirement for it to be in
the source directory.

The following will work right now:

mkdir ~/build
cd ~/build
cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" ~/dev/Corinthia
