Hi Alexander

First of all I should say congratulations for the great idea. I have seen
two similar systems so far: Open Build Service and Launchpad. Former one is
cross-distribution and later one only compiles Ubuntu packages. Seems no
cross-platform, open-source build system is available. It would be nice to
have one :)

Personally I'm experiencing so many troubles with deploying my Qt-based
program for Win / Linux / Mac. This becomes even more complicated if taking
care of hardware architectures, optimizations, Qt versions and different
configs of the framework.

Since Qt is cross-platform enough, I think it can be a good candidate for
starting point of first cross-platform build system.
