BUILDING THIS ROM:

First, read through Google's Android website about "how to setup a build environment":
http://source.android.com/source/initializing.html

Then you can setup the Kindle Fire by doing the following:
mkdir android
cd android
(Use main repo for CyanogenMod 11)
repo init -u https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android -b cm-11
repo sync
vendor/cm/get-prebuilts
. build/envsetup.sh && brunch otter2

Should I do a factory reset to test this, or could I just wipe Cache and Dalvik and be OK?

Can probably wipe dalvik/cache and be fine. Make sure to also flash new gapps.

Good is also, that we can update once the official cm10.2 nightlies are out due to the cm updater.

I need some feedback on this ROM. I'm looking to enable CM 10.2 nightlies but I want to make sure there's no blockers.
