Hi Christophe, you just anticipate me a bit, I'm just doing the same
of you branching shr-import, and trying to have qt4.5.2, kernel, qalee, litephone and my apps on it.
I agree, shr-import is not suited for branching new distributions dues
of it's bleeding edge nature, highly E customization/dependencies and
no effort on some alternative toolkits.
I'm waiting for further news about a common smartphone branch as of
Mickey's announce.
In the mean time, an shr-console-image.bb or shr-console-x11-image
(without illume, e* etc) may be very appreciated.
