[webkit-dev] Windows mobile build

That's great news... How far away are you from getting this build toolchain working?

I want to upstream the API once I work out how we can integrate our changes; which I think means that first we need a build environment that can build our changes.

We are still working on the LayoutTests right now so I'm not sure.

Hi, Jason.

I don't think it is a good idea to add separate solution and vcproj
files for Windows Mobile.

Windows Mobile is just a small part of Windows CE. Windows CE covers
multiple CPU architectures (ARM, MIPS, ..) and platforms with varying
features. I hope the build system covers multiple configurations
easily. vcproj file is too verbose and not easy to maintain to keep
multiple configurations as we can see from Windows port.

If we are going to add a build system for Windows CE, I think we need
a more clever way to deal with this problem. I am currently working on
a build system which generates MSVS solution and vcproj files from a
build script. The sole purpose of this build system is to support
multiple Windows CE platforms and configurations from a single script.
I'd like to contribute this work once it is ready.

By the way, what is your contribution plan? Do you plan to contribute
WebKit API and layout tests?
