Clarity on Repo Build Instructions

I find the instructions here:
a little confusing, and I’m hoping to get some help.

Is building the IDE mandatory?
For anyone using a binary build of UE4, it looks like they can download the repo and just put it in the MyProject/Plugins/SkookumScript folder. Is this correct?


You either need a binary IDE from another release or you will need to build the IDE yourself. See the repo: to do that.

Yes, this works.

That’s awesome, thanks!
