tar.gz file within the
0.2.2b section of https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/releases.
The readme file links to the docs in the Github which are not specific about installing tar.gz files and ensuring your

I unzipped the file and see:
How can I go about this process and get myself up and running with
0.2.2b version of bazel? Homebrew would have been easier but it doesn't allow for older versions of bazel.
