I glanced through the repo. It looks like Rob set it up much like the v3
repo. It has a one-time initialization project, the same strong key signing
parameters, and a single thing to build in the root of the repo. The only
additional prerequisite seems to be you need to install the VS 2010 SP1
SDK. I'm pretty sure there was a link to it in the Building Wix page.
