Hi folks,

I just posted an RFP soliciting contractor bids to address our build
system woes. 

The full RFP is available here:

Direct link to the PDF:

Here's the intro:
> This is a request for proposals to implement a series of small changes
> to be made to our  build configuration process, all of which will help
> in reducing the number of steps needed  to compile a viewer. A primary
> goal is to make development on each supported platform  as native and
> streamlined as possible. Please keep this in mind as you prepare your 
> response and implement your solution.
> Developers currently have a difficult time building Second Life from
> our provided source  code. This affects hobbyists who might want to
> fix bugs that annoy them, contract developers that we want deep
> collaboration with, hardware makers we want to collaborate with
> bugfixes on, and any other company or individual that wants to
> innovate on the platform.
> Linden Lab is therefore soliciting proposals for organizations or
> individuals that wish to address these issues under the auspices of a
> paid contract.
> Deadline for responses: January 12, 2008, 9am PST

Please address RFP responses via email to me.
