-Currently, to use build2 you will need a C++ compiler with C++14 support.
-This may be relaxed later to only require C++11. For now, gcc 4.9.0 or
-later and clang 3.5.0 or later are known to work.
-build2 is self-hosted, which means that unless you have obtained a pre-
-built binary of build2 from somewhere else, you will need to bootstrap
-it. To accomplish this, use the 'bootstrap' shell script found in the
-root directory of the build2 project. The following is a recommended

+Note: unless you specifically only need the build2 build system and not the
