SLE Thin Client SDK

Hi Novell and folks,

We’re developing a software (skype-like softphone) for different thin
clients including SLE TC (latest version of it, based on SLED11SP1), for
Wyse Linux actually. Wyse doesn’t not provide a development platform but
merely end-user thin client so I’m asking my question here.

We need SLE TC SDK and a manual of how to develop an application for
SLE TC and how to package it, since it is very different from SLED from
developer’s point of view: it is squash-based and has read-only and
read-write filesystems merged/united(unionfs probably?). Standard RPM
package isn’t enough unfortunately. So it is hard to figure out without
appropriate documentation how to create Add-On packages for SLE TC. Also
it is unclear where to store user-specific config files and so on (since
$HOME/.appname can be erased at reboot…) and it is unclear how to
manage system settings form the application (like adding option to
autostart it on general Gnome-based desktop means copying desktop entry
file appname.desktop to $HOME/.config/autostart, but this doesn’t work
for SLE TC since it doesn’t survive at reboot).

Can anybody help me in getting SLE TC SDK or point to the right
