There is some work on the OBS/BOSS side. It's not stunningly visible at the
moment since we're mainly working on individual parts of it.
I'm working on repackaging BOSS to sort out some 'productisation' issues that
we've identified having used it in anger inside Nokia. This should be done this
week. (I literally just deployed it on a VM a few moments ago).
Improving the docs for all of this is part of the MeeGo integration project that
the Nokia build/OBS infrastructure team (me, Aapi, Aleksi, Islam, Marko etc) are

FWIW I'm going to make supporting this goal a personal objective since a fair
bit of the things I'm working on will be used :)
I (and Niels of course) can work on getting the OBS projects setup and then get
some automation working. Hopefully we can then work with a few application
developers to run through the build process.

* OBS to build the apps (minor tweaking)
* BOSS to do some promotion automation (setup and small amount of work)
* Web UI to support user input (new task - however much of it is within the
scope of the current Nokia team's productisation work)
* and of course http://apps-beta.meego.com/

I think we need pushing.
