The downloading the latest release should be enough, you should 
have it available on whatever flavour of Linux you prefer.  
Shouldn't need to checkout the fork unless you want to help out 
with testing or want to build a testsuite for support.

I haven't began to make any changes yet.  And actually am looking 
at how much work it would be to switch the backend driver over 
from the old annotate interface to gdb/mi.
