Hi all,

Last week Lixia and me talked to a few biomedical people in Clemson
University. They were trying to setup an NDN repo and reported that the
process is rather difficult.

So they came up with a list of steps and challenges they encountered, which
I think it's pretty valuable, given that it presents a view from a
non-computer science user's perspective:


I noticed that we have tutorials and instructions for each individual
components, but don't seem to have such a comprehensive instruction of
setting up an application from scratch (e.g., install ndn-cxx/NFD,
configure routes, make use ndn-tools, setup application, etc).

If this doc can be further refined, generalized, and made public, I think
it would be great for the NDN development. Maybe we can discuss at Friday's
