the point is that the current packaging of sbt, uses loads of embedded binaries to bootstrap sbt, which is not very Vcs friendly. Emmanuel tricked several sbt runtime dependencies to have them build without those embedded binaries, which is great with only javac and scalac because the build process is simple enough. But for sbt, as far as I remember, you cannot just javac * and scalac * (as for the other simple sbt- packages : see d/rules of sbt-launcher-interface, sbt-serialization etc), because pieces of the source code is generated during the build process and I didn't find time to fake that source generation without the embedded sbt, with only javac/scalac. Currently, sbt in the archive is 0.13.13 and upstream seems to propose 1.3 . So, is it more easy to try to build 1.3 from scratch or do we need to pursue the effort on 0.13.13 to be able to then build 1.3 ... only digging more can tell :) F.
