This might work for smaller things, but the SDK build is quite big and takes long even without running any tests. This will give you a loooong time to pray ;-).



For what it's worth, my (CBI) platform build from scratch takes about 15 minutes on my laptop. Fastest I've heard so far is 7 minutes. Slowest was around 30 minutes. Incremental builds will obviously take far less time than this in many cases.

If you haven't had a chance yet, it's worth trying to see how darned easy it is: CBI platform build.

Special thanks to Paul, Igor, and Thanh for their great work and to the many others who have provided valuable feedback and testing.
