Hi Emre,
There are instructions on the wiki for getting a basic build environment 
set up for openmoko, and there are more detailed instructions at
openembedded is a good build system, but it can be challenging to set 
up.  You will need a linux box for it with a fair amount of CPU, mem and 
disk (~10GB)

You will need to modify the bitbake recipe for (e.g. battery-applet, 
although that is probably not the actual recipe name) and then once it 
compiles and works as you like, run a 'mtn diff' to generate the patch 
to submit.

(these instructions would work for general openembedded packages, I 
assume the same holds for openmoko)
