That's a good question, and I don't have a good answer other than to say
that the build script starts off by executing the "clean" target which
deletes everything (except for the script folder) and then pulls the
entire tree from source.

This process does work when the entire source is first checked out
normally, and that's what I have in place now. The only downside is
that the code is pulled from the repository to the build machine twice.
This is not much of an issue because the repository and build machine
are on the same local gigabit network. However, I still see it as less
than ideal.

It sounds like a reasonable solution for us is to make a small process
change. If the pre-build pulls the whole project folder instead of only
the script subfolder then it is not necessary for the build process to
delete and then update.

Thanks again for your input, and I really appreciate you adding me to
the CC on your responses because I am not subscribed to the list and so
far I have not found out how to determine the message number or thread
number.
