OK I cloned a snapshot of community using git through the API. IT was put ina new directory and configured with JDK 1.6 (_23) and lib.tools are per specficiation on the supporting website. I have done this before and it's built with warnings but no errors.
But toda, no go.7 error instances invovling 3 disticnt "cannot find symbol" type errors. For the morbidly curious they are all located in in ..\community\platform\util\testSrc.
Which tells me that testSrc ought to be excluded from the build, if only on the grounds that it doesn't compile and it's *just test stuff* anyway.... er, right.
Here is my question-
How is it that I can clone the repo thus
Git Repository URL: git://git.jetbrains.org/idea/community.git
Directory Name : community
and get a version that doesn't build?
I am asking this because I need to be able to instruct others how to clone the community edition and build it. Is there some *specific* RUL of Directory Name other than the ones I entered which is guaranteed to retrieve a buildable clone?
