Topic: How to set up switch for developing on dune?

Hi, I've cloned a fork the dune repo. I want to set up an opam switch to hack around on dune. However, I cannot seem to set the switch up. I've tried running make dev-switch but that doesn't seem to work. For example, the dune-site package cannot be found. Do I need an extra opam repo for this?

If you just want to build dune, you don’t need any dependencies apart from csexp. You only need the dev-switch if you’d like to run the test suite.

If the dev-switch target doesnt work, I’d make an issue for it. As far as I know only one maintainer is using it.
