Thanks for your quick answer. Actually I'm not looking for somebody to do
all the work, I just need somebody able to help me make a compiling project
with webcore for iOS, which may be a really quick work for someone involved
in the project for long time (I guess).
Regarding what you point, I do already know that and I have been working
with the code that apple released, I'm just trying to use Gyp or Cmake to
create an xcode project or find for some way to compile it so that I get an
.a file and me being able to make some changes to the code.
The sad true is that I have too less experience with any of this tools and
I'm just doing what forums says without any success. When I saw your post
I thought that you know a lot about them so that's why I came to you.
So, aren't you the right person to help me with this? Any other advice?
Anybody you may know that could help me with this?
As I said, my company is willing to pay for the job, but we are not sure if
posting our problem in
http://lists.webkit.org/mailman/listinfo/webkit-jobs would
be a good idea.

Thanks again for all your help!
