Whiteboard

[rsalveti, Oct 11, 2011] Approved but he'll probably be able to work on it for just one week, so it's likely to be postponed.
[rsalveti, Nov 16, 2011] Please remember posting the instructions and more information about how to cross build the packages before end of next monday. If you're unable to make a progress with chromium until next week, please open a bug and link it to this blueprint.
[dzin, Nov 23, 2011] chromium was not completed for 11.11 so it was broken out into a blueprint with a milestone target for 11.12. https://blueprints.launchpad.net/linaro-ubuntu/+spec/cross-build-chromium-multiarch
[rikuvoipio, Nov 24, 2011], Instructions at https://wiki.linaro.org/Platform/DevPlatform/CrossCompile/FirefoxCrossCompile
