I'm happy to announce that I've finally updated the publicly available version of our CentOS 5.0 build reference platform. There are many changes to it since the last released version, most notably a Scratchbox installation and Mercurial. For all the details you can have a look at the reference platform wiki page. Everything up to Version 17 is included on the released version.
