I've been looking for a simple instructions to point users to, so anybody can try building an Emacs 27 snapshot.

Here's the closest official URL I could find: https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/CONTRIBUTE

The script at the top should be a good starting point, but it does more than just "build and run Emacs from scratch".

In particular, it changes the user's Git configuration. And if somebody just copy-pastes in into their terminal, it will bork their global Git config. So how about we remove those lines, or move them to a separate section?

Or is there a better page I can link to?
