[ANNOUNCE] Wayland continuous integration repository

I've been working for a bit on an easier way to build Wayland from source, and
more importantly, to get versions of all its dependencies that are known to
work together. This is what I came up with :)

I'm now offering for public consumption the Wayland continuous integration
repository. Git information here:


Basically, the idea is that all the packages mentioned in Wayland's build
instructions[1] are checked out as submodules[2]. With a couple of commands all
the source is checked out, and the Makefile in the root of the repo can build
and clean them all together.

Right now it has latest masters for everything as of last night. I'd like to do
a 0.85 branch but we'd have to discuss policy on what dependencies get updated
to what bar.

I hope to add a script to the root of the repo soon with a few toys, but for
right now it's a simple and easy way to get and build Wayland.

Let me know what breaks!
