I think that's a very good idea! It can also help us identify whether
current Edgy is buildable on armel and (if not) identify possible
issues on porting to "real" hardware.

Do you have any preference on a cross-build solution?
http://www.emdebian.org/ lists various cross-compilation tools (see
left menu), maybe we can pick one or two and do some comparisons.

I personally find Scratchbox easy to use (I use it at work), but I can
test other tools too.

Another thing to decide is which "basic" selection of packages we want
to build initially. I'd suggest trying to get ubuntu-minimal built
first, then try other more "complex" packages.

What do you think?
