+Using the iODBC GIT Tree
+========================
+
+Copyright (C) 1996-2012 OpenLink Software <iodbc@openlinksw.com>
+
+
+Introduction
+============
+
+This document describes how to checkout a copy of the git tree for
+development purposes. It also lists the packages that need to be
+installed prior to generating the necessary scripts and Makefiles to
+build the project.
+
+Git access is only needed for developers who want to actively track
+progress of the iODBC source code and contribute bugfixes or
+enhancements to the project. It requires basic knowledge of git
+itself, the general layout of open source and GNU projects, the use
+of autoconf and automake etc, which is beyond the scope of this
+document.
+
+If you have any questions, please email us at <iodbc@openlinksw.com>.
+
+
+Git Archive Server Access
+=========================
+
+For main development OpenLink Software will publish the iODBC tree
+to GitHub and encourage everyone who is interested in tracking the
+project, to make an account there.
+
+Users who mainly just want to track the code can use the following
+command to get a copy of the tree:
+
+ $ git clone git://github.com/openlink/iODBC
+
+
+At this point you can create your own work branch based on any of
+the branches available, create bugfixes and commit them to your own
+branch and then use the 'git format-patch' command to generate the
+appropriate diffs to send to:
+
+ iodbc@openlinksw.com
+
+
+Developers are encouraged to fork the project using GitHub, create
+their own branches to make enhancements/bugfixes and then send pull
+requests using the excellent GitHub interface for the OpenLink team
+to examine and incorporate the fixes into the master tree for an
+upcoming release.
+
+Github has excellent documentation on how to fork a project, send
+pull requests, track the project etc. on:
+
+ http://help.github.com/
+
+
+OpenLink Software will continue to use sourceforge.net for the
+source tarball releases and certain binary releases, and for
+completenes will also provides read-only Git Archive access.
+

+
+
+Package Dependencies
+====================
+
+To generate the configure script and all other build files necessary,
+please make sure the following packages and recommended versions are
+installed on your system.
+
+ Package Version From
+ autoconf 2.57 http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/
+ automake 1.9 http://www.gnu.org/software/automake/
+ libtool 1.5 http://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/
+ make 3.79.1 http://www.gnu.org/software/make/
+ gtk+ 1.2.10 ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/v1.2
+
+
+and any GNU packages required by these. The autogen.sh and configure
+scripts check for the presence and right version of some of the required
+components.
+
+The above version are the minimum recommended versions of these
+packages. Older version of these packages can sometimes be used, but
+could cause build problems.
+
+To check the version number of the tools installed on your system,
+use one of the following commands:
+
+ $ autoconf --version
+ $ automake --version
+ $ libtoolize --version
+ $ make --version
+ $ gtk-config --version
+
+
+Generate build files
+====================
+To generate the configure script and all related build files, use one
+of the following commands:
+
+ $ autoreconf --install
+
+or use the supplied script in your checkout directory:
+
+ $ ./bootstrap.sh
+
+If the above commands succeed without any error messages, please use the
+following command to check out all the options you can use:
+
+ $ ./configure --help
+
+Certain build targets are only enabled when the --enable-maintainer-mode
+flag is added to configure.
+
+Please read the files INSTALL and README in this directory for further
+information on how to configure the package and install it on your system.
