For whoever flagged this package, I have unflagged it.

All releases since 4.9.0 have been internal Facebook releases, and Facebook is neither testing that the code will build on non-FB systems, nor willing to support people outside of Facebook. Everyone outside of Facebook are supposed to use the binary builds. Sadly, it's the way it is at Facebook open source.

For what is worth, I could not get the latest weekly releases to build. I'm still trying, but unfortunately without much luck. If you could, then your help is much appreciated. Before that happens, we'd have to stick to 4.9.0.

If you do need the latest weekly release, I guess you have to use watchman-bin until I'm able to fix the build...
