One day in the not too distant past, (within the timeframe 13 has been available) I downloaded from github the Intellij source, followed the instructions and sucessfully built it. Yesterday, I did the exact same thing, downloading the source from the link provided at the instructions which are located here:
. What was at that link had a different name. Instead of being named "intellij-community" it was named "intellij-community-master'. Also, what was at that link would not compile.. Basically (probably because paths were wrong ) it couldn't locate any of its libraries including anything starting with "com.intellij" or anything else for that matter.
Here's where the previously mentioned page linked me to
Given only what I've told you, does this make any sense to anyone? I am thinking that somehow everyone but me knows that anything with "master" in the name located in source control might not compile.
