Continuing the discussion from Platform 1.10.4 Standalone release:
Let me reiterate my request more explicitly (and also bring this over to a dedicated thread):
I think this current documentation for how to build the standalone is completely inadequate for its purpose. (I completely understand how it got to be that way over time.)
Someone should restructure/rewrite this documentation from scratch (with a target audience being an experienced OpenMRS developer doing a maintenance release of the platform, but who has never built the standalone before).
This ought to be coordinated by @maurya (as the release manager manager), and I guess that @maurya, @maany, @dkayiwa, and @wyclif would have things to contribute. (And Wyclif made some specific comments on the thread this is forked from.)
(But please don’t just make minor modification. It really needs serious work!)
