Multiple selections is already on the road-map. Hosting is a bit more
complicated, since bandwidth isn't free. :-)


Kon-- Feel free to follow up with me off-list if you have other questions.

The 3.0 appliance has the scratchbox as a separate vmdk drive image which is
mounted at boot. It is pretty easy to swap this out with a 2.0 vmdk image. If
people want 2.0 I can certainly add it. I still have a 770 and a few apps
recompiled for the 770 as it is. 

As for multiple versions.. I don't see the point in reinventing the wheel.
Just add to the existing device - it has been customized beyond just the SDK
installation, and regardless I am offering my time gratis. 

VMware would make this task a lot easier if they expanded the capability of
their appliance hosting portal by allowing selections for multiple downloads
ala configurations for a single appliance. Of course, hosting of the images
would help as well :-)

It's on my list to do on my own time, but would be accomplished much faster
if other folks in the community were to build it, and engaged myself or other
VMware folks for assistance.

Or someone can make a single VMWare appliance for both Maemo versions.
It is posible to install the 2.1 SDK on Scratchbox 1.0 -- I've just done
so, following the instructions on this page:
