I'd like to make a request for specific up-to-date content.

I have tried several times to install scratchbox and other soeftware for 
maemo development on my Debian system, and have not succeeded.  There 
seem to be instructions and relevant repositories secreted in carious 
places on the web.  However, when following perfectly reasonable-looking 
instructions, I keep finding that they don't work as described -- 
usually because the relevant repositories have desappeared.

I'd like to request an up-to-date page on installing the development 
environment in a way that's compatible with responsible system 
administration on Debian.  Even the Nokia's script that says it uses the 
Debian packaging system and claims to write only to a specific (new) 
top-level file system does, in fact, write elsewhere.

Finally, debian lenny now has a package called scratchbox2.  The 
instructions I've seen all use variations on scratchbox 1.*.  Is that a 
sign the instructions are obsolete?  Or is scratchbox2 really a very 
different thing?
