Subject RE: [build][doc] building on Debian
Date Thu, 18 Jan 2007 06:45:59 GMT
Suggestions on where to place updates: 

For step 2, we can add a note to: 
http://harmony.apache.org/quickhelp_contributors.html

For step 3, this is some Wiki troubleshooting, but not sure which one ;(


Cheers, 
Nadya
