Hi Manfred,

Thanks for your response. I've got the code up and running, I've also
started to make some updates. As my initial email mentioned I've made some
fixes (I'll be submitting these to the issues I'd previously raised once
I've run the tests on the project and made sure they don't break anything).

The main reason for my email is query regarding id's and looking for id's
relative to the parent naming container if they cannot be found in relation
the current naming container. I should I add this as an issue in the issue
tracker? It's not really an issue, but a very helpful update,

All the best,

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 If some of the instructions are out of date we certainly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,
