I really wanted to help with the Gnome Builder project because I really feel like I have a lot I can add. The instructions to build it aren’t bad actually. They’re simplistic and straightforward. The problem is jhbuild sucks. I can’t get that stupid program to work to save my life.
I don’t understand how so many people can seem to get that to work for them. I guess it’s one of those things where once you get a setup that works you never touch it unless you have to because god forbid you break it. Your whole week is going to be shot.
Why doesn’t Gnome have a VM you can download for development. People were upset a while back because Gnome wanted to make their own distro. Do you remember that? Now, having attempted to use jhbuild I understand why and I am 100% behind that project.
