Excellent advice. thank you.

I remember reading a while back on an auto build script(s) to pull from 
the old SVN and build/install etc...

Is there such a breast now that works with GIT and does the same thing?  
Or could anyone share their setup to have this automated?

Looking forward to seeing what has been done since 24 stable.  Its been 
a while since I have been in the pre-release stuff.
