neat !

This is something I care because I am trying to make Tizen:Common
supporting many different hardware
to make sure the system is not arch oriented and can be a solid base
for generic development...

Let me reference your project on this page I am drafting to ease cross
profile kernel packaging

Which version is it ? do you plan to share the source as community contrib ?
what about the targeted machine

Let me remind Tizen:Common requirements to be supported :

* need to have SMACK enabled
* need to be based on linux lts 3.14.+ (next ltsi?)
* need hw graphics (drm , egl...)

Yea I think this is the 1st thing to achieve,
do you indent to use obs/gbs or yocto ?
1st one is current tizen build system .

I dont see any easier way that bootstraping your own OBS server (using qemu)
or deploy it to a MIPS farm

I dont know any yet . but I know who can help you ,

So I invite you to report a "wish" tizen tracker and try to attract
their attention.

Good luck

ps: let's move the conversation to dev list ...
