I had already mentioned this to Sergey on the gnome-cc-list yesterday.
He wasn't too sure about how jhbuild worked, so I was in the process of
explaining, so he could set it up for himself.

Do we currently have a dependency and module documentation on-line
somewhere? I have had several people ask me about such information (or
moan about the lack of). It would be good to have a build guide for ISVs
at the very least. GNOME is becoming more and more difficult to build
and package because of the lack of this type of documentation (these are
comments I've had from both individuals and people involved in small
distributions). If it is available somewhere, we need better publicise
it better.
