I am not talking about the rootstraps or Maemo itself, but about "all
the necessary source etc so that people can get the Maemo SDK running on
their distributions".  That would be mostly Scratchbox, including the
devkit and toolchain packages, but maybe also helper scripts like
maemo-assistant.  (I hope Scratchbox can run a 32 bit target on a 64 bit
host without emulation.)

We have a lot of things despite me not worrying about them.
