Application Description:

MeeCoLay is a compatibility layer to run MeeGo Harmattan N9 apps on Maemo 5 Fremantle.
First I was trying to port applauncherd, as nearly each app depends on this. Unfortunately it had many closed source depends, and I couldn't manange it. I noticed though, that binaries work somehow.
Then I had to complete a load of libraries. Some of them could be compiled, as libqmlog0, libdsme0.2.0-meecolay (name changed not to interfere with Maemo 5 libdsme). Some had to be binaries, and it's 4 library packs of them. MeeCoLay uses its own source of libraries which can't make into extras from various reasons, are completely stable and working.
For compiling some libs I compiled newer automake and autoconf, and applauncherd too. The applauncherd port's invoker shouldn't be used, as it has to be improved.
I had to create some metapackages, such as libqtcore4 to diminish the amount of dependency errors.
I needed to work out many environmental variables to improve running MeeGo apps and find out the terms of redistribution of Nokia binaries.
