Yeah, that's on my wish list too. At the very least, pointers to
projects like https://aerogear.org/ and http://www.eclipse.org/thym/
may be useful to alert folks to open source cross-platform tooling for
targeting multiple mobile operating systems.

The hard part isn't going to be finding information to include, it's
going to be distilling it down into a combination of sensible default
recommendations that avoid overwhelming folks with choice, while also
conveying the vast array of options the open source community has
collectively made available for everyone to use when we decide the
defaults aren't right for the specific project we're interested in.
