 Building From Source
-One of the first steps to joining a software project is to build the software.
-Check out the `GNOME Newcomers Tutorial`_ for how to build software for GNOME.
-It includes a guide for how to build Builder, as well as many other GNOME software projects.
+Learn out how to install :ref:`via-jhbuild` in our installation documentation.
-For the impatient, you can use ``jhbuild`` to simplify the build process.
-.. note::
-   We do not recommend installing jhbuild using your Linux distributions package manager as
-   it will be out of date.
-.. code-block:: sh
-   git clone git://git.gnome.org/jhbuild.git
-   cd jhbuild
-   ./autogen.sh --simple-install
-   make
-   make install
-   jhbuild sysdeps --install gnome-builder
-   jhbuild build gnome-builder
-   jhbuild run gnome-builder
+Currently, JHBuild is how we recommend contributing to Builder.
+We do expect this to change very soon in that you'll be able to easily contribute to Builder from our 
flatpak-version of Builder.
