OBS and Fremantle ... huge success :) and HELP!!!!

As you may know I recently volunteered to setup a community OBS in my "spare time" (hah, right!). This is a progress report because I've reached a significant milestone... the following 193 applications have been built from 'Extras' most on both ARM and X86:

accdisplay, acl, actman, adblock-plus-1.0, adflashblock-css, alienblaster, anarchism, attitude, attr, audiofile, avahi, battery-eye, belltower, blubbels, bluetooth-dun, bluezwitch, brainparty-data, burgerspace, catorise, clutter, clutter-gtk, copernicium, crimson, currencyconverter, datetoday-home-widget, dbus-python, de-lite, dialcentral, doom-wad-shareware, easy-deb-chroot, easypark, ejpi, fapn, feedingit, feedparser, flac, flatzebra, fm-boost, fmradio, freecell4maemo, fschedule, fuse, gboggle, glibmm2.4, glogarchive, gnome-python, gonvert, goocanvas, gpe-icons, gpodder-icon-theme, greekiradio, gst-plugins-good0.10-flv, gst-plugins-good0.10-mkv, gst-plugins-good0.10-ogg, gst0.10-python, gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, gtk+extra2, gweled, headphoned, healthcheck, hex-a-hop, host, irssi, jamaendo, json-glib, kernel-power-settings, libart-lgpl, libcap, libdaemon, libevent, libffi, libgnomecanvas, libgnomeprint, libgtkhtml2, libliqbase, libmad, libmicrofeed, libmodplug, libraw-lite, librsvg, libsidplay, libsigc++-2.0, libsoup2.26-1, libxinerama, liqflow, lirc, lybniz, lzma, lzo2, madbomber, maemo-optify, mafw-lastfm, mancala, mastory, masudoku, mauku, mclock, meanwhile, mediabox, microfeed, microfeed-providers-unstable, microfeed-utils, milkyway-wallpaper, mirror, mplayer, mspede, mutagen, mygpoclient, n900-fmrx-enabler, n900fly, nako, ncalc, nmap, notify-python, omweather, openvpn, openvpn-applet, panucci, pedometerhomewidget, pexpect, polipo, poppler, proximityd, pycairo, pycurl, pygame, pygobject, pygtk, pygtkeditor, pyinotify, pymaemo-optify, pypianobar, pyrecipe, python-central, python-dbus, python-evolution, python-facebook, python-gdata, python-gtkhtml2, python-imaging, python-location, python-numeric, python-support, python-twitter, python-xml, python-ystockquote, qtsixa, quickbrownfox, quicknote, recaller, reflect, rfk, rmz-helsinki-wallpaper, rmz-senaatintori-wallpaper, rootsh, rsync, sdl-net1.2, sdl-ttf2.0, sdlgfx, sdlpango, sense, sgt-puzzles, shortcutd, sip4, sleeper, solarwolf, sopwith, sqlite, ssh-status, stockthis, storageusage, supertux-stable, systeminfowidget, tar, tennix, thai-ttf, tickstill, tor, touchsearch, tsocks, uqm-3do-data, uqm-data, uremote, ussd-common, ussd-widget, vim, vor, vultures, wget, witter, worldtv99, xkblayouts-rx51-ru, zoutube

There are a lot that don't build but I think we're at the point where I need help from some experts and it's time to open the beta service up to early adopters. You can see what I've done to setup Fremantle on the OBS.

As I said HELP
I now need to fix build issues like:
installing hildon-update-category-database
/usr/bin/hildon-update-category-database: I don't have write permission on /usr/share/mime.
Try rerunning me as root.
dpkg: error processing hildon-update-category-database (--install):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
exit ...
which blocks a large number of applications

and package specific ones like this in libogg:
automake: installing `./mkinstalldirs' require version 1.6, but have 1.4-p6
include/ogg/ invalid variable `nodist_ogginclude_HEADERS'
autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1
make: *** [configure-stamp] Error 1
dpkg-buildpackage: failure: debian/rules build gave error exit status 2

I can fix almost all of them myself but that's not the point - we need a team to make this work. Please get in touch and help.
