One must run external.bat if one is to subsequently build from the vs gui with *most* of the external dependencies. I think the command to run it should be 'external', not 'ready'. 'External' means get the external dependencies and anyone who has run external.bat will know what it means. 'Ready' does not mean anything in particular.

Just curious:
Why do the buildbots run make clean before re-compiling? I seems like lots of extra work to re-compile things that are up to date?

What does running 'kill-python before re-building python do? I have not seen it mentioned in the in the devguide or pcbuild/readme.
