Hi all,

I have been working in a tool to run Sugar Build on distributions
which can't be supported by Sugar Build (oldstable, old versions of
the supported distros, etc).
You can see the git repository at [1].
This tool creates a virtual Ubuntu environment and builds Sugar on it.

With debootstrap as a dependency, the usage of this tool is very easy:

$ sudo ./env.sh install
$ sudo ./env.sh shell
$ cd ~/sugar-build
$ make run
$ exit

I'm planning some improvements to do it more confortable and Daniel
Narvaez is giving me some suggestions and bug reports.
As soon as it's stable, the documentation will be in the Sugar Docs.
Now you can read the usage in the README.

Happy building!
