(For those who don't know, I'm the build guy for Mer)
I don't think it would be hard to build Fremantle in OBS.

There may be some policy issues using the public OBS server (they don't
like closed binaries) but Mer may be setting up a 'private' OBS anyhow
to handle the opengl dev binaries - In general OBS is certainly a good
approach IMHO.

I spent a few minutes on this for fun last year and made good progress.
My approach was to fake out scratchboxisms and it worked pretty damned

Mer already uses a sophisticated (ie clever hack) debian derived
cross-compiler with qemu - more info on the Mer Build pages. Actually
there's a *lot* there :)

Answering a later thread: OBS is working on linking to VCS too
