Your own dev environment is the only real support guarantee when it comes to the open source solutions (aka Github-based).. #DynamicsConsulting

With any open source solution for Dynamics (aka Github-based), the only real support guarantee is to get the source code to your own dev environment and to build it there. Only then can you safely use that solution in production..
