You can edit the page [1] since Niels added you to the maemo2midgard

I doubt that the "getting svn access" part will not fit in the 2.5
weeks, since you have to discuss it with a lot of people inside Nokia.
We have Contribution Guidelines [1]. Maybe you could submit a proposal
on how to change that and Nokia should review it. We are here to push
them now ;)

Would make sense to implement it as a Midgard module, so that others
could benefit from it too. A prototype, or an "early beta" could be done
in 2.5 weeks, but I would rather say the "production version" will be
ready in the next sprint. Midgard gurus, what do you say?

All your ideas sound good, I am supporting them.
