… and time to share some thoughts! It would be great if we could get the cctbx up and running by just cloning, configuring and building without needing to download anything else.

That could be done by adding SCons, Boost, and ccp4io as  submodules in the cctbx repository. And I reckon ccp4io_adaptbx should be added as a subtree since it is developed by the same people as the cctbx.

Just an idea to think about as I haven’t not worked out the details at all.

Best wishes,
