Martin Dengler has been incredibly pushing an effort to make SoaS run on
the XO. In fact, for some time now, the "normal" SoaS builds and the
SoaS-XO builds are using the same code-base. The plan was and is to
build and announce these snapshots jointly in the very near future.
Setting up a cron job to have builds should probably be not too hard...
There has even been a feature proposal for that in Launchpad:
Will this SIG's work be incorporated in the SoaS-XO files (I can't even
speak of GIT branches anymore, because it's all in mainline now, which
is just awesome!) or will it create another solution?
