That's awesome!!! I do however think its a little funny that the
opensuse build service is being used to bootstrap Fedora, but more
power to open source collaboration :)
I think they're missing out on the value of having a Fedora basis, they
say on their wiki http://wiki.meego.com/ARM_Support
''The initial goal is to get rid of the F12 dependency and start build
MeeGo ARM in a self-contain environment.''
I wonder what their reasoning is for that since there's obvious value
having a giant package universe well maintained and constantly
uplevelled. It doesn't make any sense to just bootstrap from it and get
away from it back into having to deal with all rootfs packages yourself
again, carry patches, etc.
Still, at least they got away from cross :-)
