Sorry if I ask, but I am really unfamiliar with these things.
Does this involve any actual compiling of code ?
I mean, if the only thing that is changed is some documentation page, it won't I guess. 
But would the build break just because there is no compiler available ?

I guess I've just lost all my guru points here.
