A Big Problem... (deleted)

If someone REALLY thinks that pdaXrom should be moved over to the OE system, then it seems to me, since all of the source is there in the open, they should just start doing it. I mean, why not one more splinter? Take pdaXrom, port it to OE, make it work, prove to all of us that it works better, and if it really does do everything we want, then we'll come over to your camp.

Indeed, this is a thought that I'd had, now I just need some spare time. With that said, that spare time would be better spent improving OZ (perhaps using some of the pdaX patches, etc.), rather than trying to re-implement pdaX from scratch.

Sash does not want to use OE, and there really is no reason to push him to.

Yes, I agree. The point of this entire thread (at least the current part of the topic anyway), imho, is to say that that as there are so few of us, we ought to work together. One way to improve productivity would be for everyone to have the same build system, however there are probably other ways.

Honestly, in five years, most of us will have a new PDA, so delaying development of our working platform for infrastructure changes is not very appealing when what we have works so well for us.

As for OE. I think Mickey's goal is to have a system that we can be using on our new PDA's in five years too. I just wish that some of the OE guys could sit back and let that be their vindication, rather poking at us pdaXrom users now.

Fair point.

Anyway, I don't see anything changing regarding the usage of the build systems, so we may as well draw this (part of the) thread to a close and hopefully stop sniping at one another.

Cheers,
