How can I set Kamailio specific attributes for master branch (development)?

It is very simple, after you fetch the GIT repository, run:

  make FLAVOUR=kamailio cfg

Then proceed normally with compilation and installation. The above make command does not touch a single line of C code. After installation the binary is named kamailio and the rest is as described in previous section.
