Basically, we need to make the installation problem easier. Currently, its a PITA to install. We need to automate the build process, and create installers for the big 3 operating systems: Linux, Windows, OSX.

    I'm beginning to tackle this.

    Install instructions will need to spilt into two, one for developers (who need Eclipse, sdcc, etc.) and one for users (who need to install Java, the reprap host software, and maybe the .hex files for the PICs, and that's all).

    i'd say we've got this one reasonably handled. install 2 libs and run the jar. not too hard. an installer would still be very nice though.
