I see instructions to download the current release version tarball, extract it, and run it (). I have done so and it works on Ubuntu.
I also have found and used the instructions to build the source from the instructions at http://redeclipse.net/wiki/Obtain_devel ... ne_via_Git
and that also works. What I'm wanting to do is build the exact same source as used in the current installer tarball, such that I have a runtime that is able to connect up to current servers just like the release version installer tarballs do (e.g., no protocol differences).
In other open-source tools, usually the released version is on a git branch, but I searched and searched and could not find info on the specific git commands to use to cloning the released version. I tried messing around with the "branch" names inside the .gitmodules file, such as changing "master" to "stable", but that did not work.
What are the instructions for building the released version?
