[GRADLE-364] Explicit instructions for building a tagged release of gradle (REL-0-x.y) should be on the "build from source" page Created: 21/Jan/09  Updated: 10/Sep/13  Resolved: 10/Sep/13

Currently, http://www.gradle.org/build.html does not describe
what one needs to do in order to build some tagged release in SVN.

For example, suppose you want to build:

If you follow the directions on "Building from Source",
you'd just say:

% svn co http://svn.codehaus.org/gradle/gradle-core/tags/REL-0.5.2
% ... then set GRADLE_HOME and/or the install directory & dir name properties
% gradlew clean install

then run 'gradle -v', it appears to build version 0.6<...>
not version 0.5.2. To a newcomer, that's puzzling.

This is documented internally, as a release can only be done by a core Gradleware developer.
