I don't think it makes sense to do a Open Source porting contest
using only development tools for a closed-source platform. This
essentially prevents all people who are only using Linux - like
myself - to join.
Concerning what can be done with OSS: take a look at my libxvid port
from a few years ago, using a relatively flexible way to port all
libraries that use static writable variables. This is and always was a
far more limiting restriction to S60 development than missing
But I'm pretty sure all the scripts would have to be updated to reuse this for S60 3rd rev., and a fine, clean, fast g++ toolchain is for me at least much preferrable to the overweight development kits which are so common on Win32 nowadays.
Not sure where this comment fits - it is more a criticism of the general strategy of Nokia... feel free to offer suggestions.
