Hi Anthony,

Please let me know what was not working for you getting the build working on
your local machine? If some of the instructions are out of date we
certainly would
like to know.

On the side of the bug fixes, can you file separate issues with respect
to each of
the bugs you have found at the bug tracker at
And if you have the time to include a test application (with sources
that we can use to reproduce the issue that would be great.

Note any proposed bug fix has to go through our testing harness to make sure
the proposed changes don't break anything.

Feel free to ask anything you want related to building the sources, I'll
do my
best to answer them.

Kind regards,
