That would be great. We have few developers, and we are all overloaded so we
barely have time to get something useful going. So if you want to help out,
please do!

As you are working without MMU debian (and emdebian) is probabely not for you.
uClinux would suit you better then. As having no MMU limits

We are working on a new approach. After some discussions recently at Fosdem,
we are going to mix some things. I made some adapted debhelper tools that
allow for a emdebian specific build rules. If there are no emdebian build
rules it should just build with the debian rules, leaving out docs. I am
playing with scratchbox now, and hope to be able to have a buildd running on
it soon. So I I can actually cross-compile with uclibc a lot of packages.

This would be nice. Please add them to the wiki. We can then also check them
off, and actually show the progress we make.
