SHR is based at shr-project.org, and the link you want is:
Note that it may not build cleanly at the moment as the devs are concentrating 
on some major changes in another branch, and the build procedure will change 
when they pull this branch into unstable soon.

SHR uses OpenEmbedded (OE) so development howtos for OE and bitbake will apply 
to SHR as well.

The initial build will take a long time and a lot of disk space. Once that is 
done, building extra packages that already have bitbake recipes is usually 
	cd /wherever/you/installed/it/shr-unstable
	. setup-env
	bitbake packagename
If you are using your own repository, update the repository index with:
	bitbake package-index
