I appreciate the response but suddenly I'm knee deep.

Everything becomes "simple" with experience and knowledge. :) I have neither with building qt3 from these new sources.

To where do I save this git repository? Currently I have a segregated build directory where I store Trinity SVN.

If I run the git clone command, how much am I downloading? MBs? GBs?

Am I supposed to be building all packages from git or only qt3?

I would update the wiki (and have several times in the past), but I haven't a clue about what I am doing. This all might be old news to those of you who have been doing this for the several months, but I am clueless about what is happening here. :)
