because it wasn’t trivial to rapidly look up at a glance, and “v8” is a horrible horrible name to try to google a specific reference to(right up there with phoenix on the list of bad overcrowded overused naming).. also because finding the correct link to the git for the thing, instead of say, to the git home or dl page is rough(only present in the “link to instructions to build v8” link, never noted elsewhere).
What is V8?

that said i’m sure someone specifically looking or instructions to set up the package and landing here will find this very useful, good job. you are right on that they underdocument actually building the thing.
