I know.  But the instructions for developers of where to put the 
resulting binaries assumes a structure with a Master directory - how is 
that directory structure created, unless by the regular installation of

Yup, I feel that exact pain... ;)

Okay, I'll keep an eye out for it.

It's definitely past the prime here in the city (which is warmer than in 
the mountains and countryside) - some blossoms left, but mostly leaves.  
We didn't join an ohanami party ourselves this year, but the building we 
live in is right next to a reasonably-sized park that has lots of 
sakura, so we have enjoyed the flowers every day (I can even see them 
from the window by my computer).  The only downside is when a late-night 
party includes karaoke or other loud sounds, which happened last 
Saturday night when we were trying to get to sleep early (my husband 
pastors a church, so Sundays are early mornings for us).  But we love 
where we live.

Best wishes to you too!
