work on linux. There doesn't seem to be any technical hurdles to supporting
other OS's though, but someone from the community would need to do the

I'm going to focus on the Maven tooling for a bit and then see how I go for
motivation and time. This area of JRE build scripts, is not an area I'm too

with no guarantee of results.

A fair few people said in earlier conversations regarding mobile support
that they would happily put their hands up to do this port. Seems to me
that this would be the logical first step (I'm assuming a 70MB JRE is not
going to cut it for an iPhone app) - so if anyone wants to step up for
this, the boots are ready to be put on.
