Check out Joanne's Log: SCons and Windows - a Log

There are questions concerning how closely tied SCons and Visual Studio builds need to be and how to properly accomplish that.


Recall that we are moving to a slightly new directory structure for the external libraries, where the compiler version is included in the directory path.  Reorganization of externals has been occurring on the CMT side as well, as we migrate to new versions such as ROOT v5.20.

ROOT v5.20.00-gl1  ready to go except Mac and RHEL5.
