Good that you mention.  :)

We need to evaluate how important is SB2 for maemo development. We need
to offer a complete development platform suiting at least the most
wanted needs and we want to support the completion of the missing

Said that, the main elements to consider are:

- Development via Scratchbox vs development models bypassing SB
- SB vs SB2

It's not a yes/no white/black thing. I believe there is a case for
everybody but we need to set the priorities and then provide the menu of
development tools.

There are very interesting things going on at the moment Python
development is getting in shape, the QEMU/emulation front is
progressing, Mamona http://www.vivi.eng.br/ is arriving with fresh
ideas, let's see what the Java & Ruby approached might bring as well,
then we have the IDEs...

Several pieces moving around, we need to consider all those and come up
with a sensible strategy, and results. All this work is for you guys.
Developers, please have your say.
