I think our best bet for a usable SDK would be something that sets up a
QEMU instance on top of OSTree with a click and updates with a single
click/command as well (which, as I understand it, is basically how the
Android and iOS SDKs work). Being able to build against a single set of
pre-built binaries should dramatically lower the trouble of getting
started with development on Gnome.

Every time I start a new jhbuild build tree, it's a very long and
painful process. And every full-tree update is a big risk.
