Subject Yes/No newbie question on contributing
Date Tue, 26 Jul 2016 18:41:45 GMT

In the How To Contribute doc, it says:

"Try getting the project to build and test locally before writing code...."

So, just to be 100% certain before I keep troubleshooting things, this
means I should be able to run

mvn clean install -Pdist -Dtar

without getting any failures or errors at all...none...zero, right?

I am surprised at how long this is taking as errors keep cropping up.
Should I just expect it to really take many hours (already at 10+) to work
through these issues? I am setting up a dev environment on an Ubuntu 14.04
64-bit desktop from the AWS marketplace running on EC2.

It would seem it's an obvious YES answer, but given the time investment
I've been making I just wanted to be absolutely sure before continuing.

I thought it possible that maybe some errors, depending on their nature,
can be overlooked, and that other developers may be doing that in practice.
And hence perhaps I should as well to save time. Yes or No??

Thank you,
