Using / developing on Alfresco

Hi everybody,

I've installed Alfresco to get a feeling of what it does, how, etc. NOW, I want to set up a dev environment in the PC it is running (see its code, debug, etc) and I don't know what I HAVE to do to keep both of them working.

I apologize in advance if all of these have been answered before. If that's the case, just tell where I can get this information. My questions are these:

1. Should I install everything that's detailed in the http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Alfresco_SVN_Development_Environment#Extracting_and_Building page?
2. Should I skip the installation of some of the applications detailed there?
3. Do I have to install Ant binaries or source? Isn't it supposed to be bundled in, for instance, Netbeans?
4. Why do I need to install a SVN? Or instructions refer to a SVN client?
5. If I install a new mySQL server for dev (I already have the one that's installed by defualt created by Alfresco installer) will be any conflict between them? What should I do to avoid these conflicts?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards.
