The instructions I have been following, which I believe worked in the past, are now failing on me.
Probably down to me.
What I did (my instructions to self) are below.
The install all seems to be ok, but fails on the line sudo ./js‑ant import-minimal-ce
The error/build log is...
[exec] Result: 128

Drawing a blank as to what's wrong here.
Not sure why git is even a consideration.
