[webkit-dev] Pulling together on WebKit Mobile

Dear WebKit Team,

Going back to the original topic (Pulling together on WebKit Mobile....)

Wake3 has a working version of WebKit for Windows Mobile.  We definitely
want to contribute back to the community.  We posted earlier about this,
but didn't get much of a reply.

For more information on Wake3, see the video demo on our website at
www.wake3.com.  We also gave a live demo at a recent Silicon Valley Mobile
Monday event (see our presentation at http://www.mobilemonday.us/?p=188). 
We are planning a public Beta in the next few months and we plan to
release source then.

My main concern is to make sure Windows Mobile code is part of the main
trunk, and not a side branch.  My recommended first step to make the trunk
more Windows Mobile friendly is to update the Windows version to build
without requiring proprietary Apple libraries.

How does the community feel about this?

Last, we will be at the Mobile World Congress (formerly 3GSM Congress)
next month in Barcelona.  Send email if you want to meet up and see a

We had ported S60Wekbit to WinCE.
What S60Webkit or Webkit subversion repositories to merge them?

Hey guys,

There's a lot of mobile WebKit expertise in different organisations and
from various individuals, but we haven't really done much to put it all
in one place so far.

Would you be interested in sharing your findings, internal documentation
and patches?

Some things I'd like to see:

 * Build fixes for various lightweight toolchains integrated into TOT

 * Documentation of optional defines used in the WebCore loader and

 * Build instructions made public (Scratchbox, cross-compilation etc.)

 * Compiler flags

 * Bug workarounds for different architectures and toolchains

I'd love to see what Naiem's team is finding and fixing in the GTK+
port, what tweaks the iPhone and Android engineers are using, and the
lightweight libc fixes from Peter, and Collabora's findings on the Nokia
internet tablets all in one place.

When patches get merged, the WebKit team will help you maintain them so
contributing code can help reduce the burden of maintaining ports and
build fixes out-of-tree.

I have some material I've built up privately in the last year on ARM
including benchmarks and patches that I'd like to start sharing too.

I do think we can get more done if we work together here. I've set up a
wiki page -- please edit this with your findings and suggestions:
