Today I committed r24720 and, with that, I was able to compile Haiku inside itself without the need for any hacks or reboots or anything like that (using VMWare with 1 Gb of memory available to the VM). I also run the generated image in VMWare and it booted (I didn't test it much tough). With Haiku's alpha 1 stated goal being self-hosting, this brings an alpha release ever so close to fruition.
Although this is April's 1st (and some of you will probably think it is a joke), this means that we are able to self-host now and pending something else that we may find during testing, this means we are self-hosting as of today.
