What are you using as your Origin (git remote -v will show you)? http://github.com/ironruby/ironruby/tree/b871551d35c6cf7344694197b2d3931c0b041c6f/Scripts/Bat shows a dev.bat and a psdev.ps1 in the repo.

Subject: [Ironruby-core] Problem building source - misleading information in Wiki (dev.bat)

Hi guys,

I'm planning to make some changes to the IronPython Silverlight hosting, to enable a writable virtual file system. So in order to do that I tried to set up a new development environment (virtual machine) from scratch, but ran into some issues.

The Wiki references a "deb.bat" file that will set up your environment (http://wiki.github.com/ironruby/ironruby/devbat), but the file doesn't exist anymore in the source repository.

There is a dev.sh file, but it appears to have some merge issues in it (bunch of >>>>>>> characters etc).

So my question is: is the github repository the main repository for IronRuby development? Is dev.sh the new dev.bat? Any other tips on getting started and building IronRuby? The change I'm planning to make is in the Microsoft.Scripting.Silverlight assembly, which seams small enough and easy to follow, but I want to make sure I to this the proper way.
