Amiga & AROS Stanislaw Szymczyk has been working on the AROS self-compiling bounty since April. The job, according to its website, has been not a trivial task. Now that some issues with soft links and the SFS file format have been resolved, the job is almost finished.

An OS being able to compile itself is a breakthrough moment for said OS. It's the point when an OS becomes self-sufficient. Many developers won't bother with the OS until it reaches that point.
