Sorry to raise an old thread, but I asked myself exactly the same question this afternoon. And I guess everyone new to scratchbox will ask the same question. Shouldn't that be added to the documentation on <a href="http://maemo.org">
maemo.org</a>? Btw what is the process to contribute to the documentation?<br><br>Nicolas.<br><br><div class="gmail_quote">On Nov 11, 2007 10:04 PM, Ryan Pavlik <<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</a>
