Yeah, that's a chronic problem. That's why the SVN is on matroska.org.

There's no documentation on coremake right now. There's only one C file 
and script files for which the syntax is easy to understand (it's C

In the future we plan to support FFMPEG in BetaPlayer (the open source 
version of CorePlayer) so we will surely want this thing up to date. And 
including support for platforms where FFMPEG is not used (AFAIK) like 
Symbian and maybe PalmOS. While PalmOS could do with tweakings of the 
current makefile, Symbian will not work. And most of you can hardly test 
it since the dev tools are Windows only.

We could also be constructive and add what's missing in Coremake to do 
all that the current makefiles do. Coremake is BSD licensed, and 
everybody is welcome to contribute :)
