As a follow-up to my comment about the Mer Project;
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...03&postcount=4

It may well be an "all powerful" distribution builder, but the learning curve is far too steep for this old man to climb. Life's too short for that.

They (MerProject) mention they will be sharing with Tizen -

Tizen is a relatively new, embedded device, distribution with a strong focus on providing a base for a good Application SDK.

The MerProject has the Platform SDK portion of distribution building well underway, I suspect their "code sharing" will be to use the Tizen Application SDK. I may well be wrong, this is only a guess.

The Tizen home page: https://www.tizen.org/
Tizen already builds for ARM.

For a quick review of Tizen -
https://source.tizen.org/
Click the two pages linked to in that banner;
The platform overview: https://source.tizen.org/platform
and
The release description: https://source.tizen.org/release

This one, at first look, appears to be a better choice for replacing the Amazon/lab126 mess.

The lack of a Platform SDK is only of concern to the (few, often very few) "core of the system" developers. Those people with the office under the back stairway who deal with things like kernel e-ink drivers.

The Application SDK is what the vast majority of K-Tizen developers would be dealing with day-to-day.

So this one seems worth a more in-depth look.
Developers starting point: https://developer.tizen.org/

Too big a job for a "one man show" but with a half-dozen or so active developers...

K-Tizen anybody?
