This wasn't all that clear in the docs I read, but what you are saying
makes sense. Now the trouble is I'm not sure how to get rid of the
4.3-2 version that's on mentors. I can delete the premake4 mentors
page which seems like it's probably the way to go, but makes me
slightly nervous. Can anyone advise on how to best remove the 4.3-2

Yes. I don't know about the internals of cdbs but the build failed without it.

I've removed this

As pointed out by Vincent, this is no longer used. I've removed the file.
I haven't uploaded my changes yet, I thought I'd wait and see if
anyone can advise me on removing the 4.3-2 version.
