The build sys­tem sup­ports test­ing and build­ing 3 code, on Linux, Mac OS X and Win­dows sys­tems. The pack­age of­fers:

  • A unit test­ing sys­tem for code (whether ker­nel code or con­tributed pack­ages);
  • A sys­tem for type­set­ting pack­age doc­u­men­ta­tion; and

The pack­age is es­sen­tially in­de­pen­dent of other ma­te­rial re­leased by the 3 team, and may be up­dated on a dif­fer­ent sched­ule.
