Is the build process documented anywhere? In the developers docs for
2.10, maybe?

If so, an additional sentences wouldn't hurt, such as "For developers
(or package maintainers) interested to build GNOME packages, please see
<a href="insert link">the detailed GNOME build documentation</a>."

Rationale: Getting default (or at least distributed) on more distros is
part of the marketing goals. Luis's efforts about distro branding
wouldn't make much sense without any build documentation. Linking the
docs makes it a better hit for google, less support answers because
people can find the docs more easiely, etc.
