Thank you very much for posting reply to my post.
but I have few doubt.
-Can you provide detail step (some Reference URL) regarding how to use
OBS Server, bcoz I am new to OBS.
-Can I install OBS server on Ubuntu as Development platform ?
-As you suggested not to build code, but my requirement is I would like
to have complete source code of MeeGo alongwith it's build enviornment so that
I can customize it at low level (replacing UI, Kernel, middleware)
-Then build it for other platform (cross-platform) like ARM.
Appreciating your assistance.
With Best Regards,
