Subject RE: Adding Build Instructions on the Project Front Page
Date Wed, 11 Jan 2017 00:12:25 GMT
We had a discussion some time ago about what is the best place for REEF build/test instructions.
The consensus was that build/test instructions are applicable to a specific version of code,
so they should reside in Github to be versioned and updated together with the actual code.
In we've moved instructions from wiki to Github.

We can absolutely make these instructions more detailed/step-by-step if this is needed (I
admit I haven't tried building REEF on Ubuntu so couldn't add instructions related to this
process) and/or make the links from the wiki to build documentation more prominent. If you
have a specific improvement in mind, feel free to send a pull request/edit cwiki.

Subject: Adding Build Instructions on the Project Front Page

Hi REEF devs,

Given that
is probably the first result when people search from google and bing, we don't have a direct
access to the Github build page (
Therefore, for the first-timers like me, building and testing REEF has been a really confusing
experience, since the front page and the project wiki contain little of that information.

I'm purposing adding some links/pages on the front page and wiki to walk people through in
a step-by-step fashion. Any feedback on this idea?
