Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-590) Update
Date Tue, 17 Jul 2012 15:40:33 GMT


Michael Brooks commented on CB-590:

@Ben Thanks for leaving a comment. It's good to know that others are having this issue. After
Anis reported it, I wasn't able to recreate it. However, I have an older Macbook that has
been went through a few OS upgrades, so I may have some legacy paths / binaries hanging out.

We're planning to rewrite the documentation generator, so I do not want to devote too much
time to this issue. I've updated the's installation steps and added a FAQ with Anis'
suggested fix and a link to this issue.
