Great! Having the build system be useful in its own right can only be a
good thing.

I don't have the schema as such, but the database has a public
read-only account:

mysql server:
database: rockbox
username: rockbox
password: FVUKynGTzzEad3Nq

You should be able to extract everything you need from there. I think
mysqldump --single-transaction --no-data -h -u rockbox --password=FVUKynGTzzEad3Nq rockbox
does what you want
