I wish I know when we can offer extras for receiving your apps for
bora. Some of us at nokia had an idea to setup a automated build
system which accepts source uploads only and delivers the binaries for
all our releases (mistral, scirocco, bora, etc).
For some reason we need to clarify thousand+1 things (mainly legal)
before we can offer such service. I had an idea back in December that
maybe maemo could finally co-operate with OpenEmbedded and see if we
could get the extras packages from their build system. It should be
technically possible. I promised to send a mail to Koen and Florian about this
"trial", but never got there yet. Perhaps this could kick off the
discussion here, on the maemo dev list.
