I know this is going of topic, but it might be helpful...
I think to make Tomboy a success on the tablets it is very important to
get it into the Extras-Repository. Otherwise many people will just never
know that this great app exists. The problem here is, that to get it
into this repository the dependencies of Tomboy (especially mono) need
to be in the Extras-Repository too.
To get a package to this repository it needs to be build be the maemo
auto-builder. This is a service that automatically builds your packages
from source inside scratchbox. Here lies the next problem: ATM it's not
possible to build mono completely inside scratchbox (due to qemu
limitations). So that means that is will be difficult to get Tomboy to
the Extras-Repository, where it would belong...
However, I don't want to discourage you. I'm not the most skilled person
with packaging and scratchbox development... There is still hope :)
It would be nice if you would overcome these problems, because I believe
that having mono easily available on maemo would be a big plus for other
I wish you all the best and hope you'll find some time!
