... To be honest, it's been a while since I tested a CVS build. Mostly because a CVS build (unlike a pointer release) may or may not work or even build. (... And I have a number of build problems)

... Given the number of components and the complexity of the build sequence, the E team should really consider creating a GARNOME build script. (Again, combined with official point release source tar-balls)

Isn't the easy_e17.sh script comparable to Garnome?
You can find it at:

Nice catch. Thanks.
I'll test it when I have some free time.

Is it an official script?

You can always try Elive or the E17 Ubuntu, and in fact, there are very decent E17 Ubuntu repositories out there that track E17's development pretty well (as in, updated packages every day).

ELive is a very nice E17 testing/showcase tool, no doubt about it.
... But it cannot replace my Fedora and CentOS/RHEL workstations.
