Steve Dower added the comment:

Agreed. The PCBuild/readme.txt file should clear up a few of those points, but the docs aren't exactly beginner friendly (and by that I mean beginning Windows users, not beginning C developers).

We probably need someone to write a dedicated document for building Python 2.7 at this stage. The dev guide should only really be for versions under active development. Unless someone else gets there first, I'll look at making it more approachable.

versions: +Python 3.6 -Python 2.7
