Since there was an announcement about upcoming tablet based on Mer and Plasma Active, there is a natural question to ask - how it'll be organized repositories wise? Is there any infrastructure planned, something like Mer repository and separate Plasma repository?

And in general, how does Mer plan managing releases with different manufacturers? Each one is supposed to set up separate infrastructure, or there will be some Mer Core repo? What about third party software and libraries, should developers use apps.formeego.org or something separate for each specific effort?

Thanks in advance.

I'm crossing my fingers for an ARM-supported openSUSE, its easily the best linux distro!

This would really be best to ask on the Mer mailing list, http://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Mailing_lists

Mer doesn't deliver any kind of binary compatibility story - we deliver source code and built RPMs, vendors can customize it as they want.

Vendors are free to work together to have their own application story. We can't enforce any kind of compliance as we don't own lawyers to enforce it

Read: we're not a third ecosystem. Chances are that work will be done to align ability to move QML-based applications (and HTML5/JS perhaps, with PhoneGap-Qt) across Qt5 devices.

Thanks I'll address similar kind of questions to the mail list next time. So in practice it'll mean that it's up to the Plasma active project (or whoever wants to join) to set up some repositories for their releases and third party components. I should probably ask them then what is planned.

I'd really prefer Debian (well, it supports ARM already, you just need to tailor it for specific devices). But it's the matter of taste.
