Have you actually read the feedback given from verify_tools? Have you followed the developer guide to the letter?

The question has been closed for the following reason "Duplicate Question" by grahamb 02 Mar '15, 04:24

The "ERROR" about the missing current_tag.txt can be expected if you have not yet run the "setup" step.

However, before you do that you must fix your environment as discussed on your other question.

As this question is mostly irrelevant, I'll close it and ask you to continue by responding to the questions I asked in your other question
