opkg is now using repositories on buildhost.
Will it then be pointing to 2008.8 repositories (with stable-testing-...) ?
Or will it have its own repositories ?
Or... both common repositories with 2008.8 and specific ones ?

About current release, except that now Qtopia 2008.8 installs some of
its qtopia package into /opt/qtopia, are 2008.8 repositories safe for
Qtopia distro ? (I would say no, but not sure...)

ok, now update binary released on qtopia.net alows updating without
using whole jffs2
Though maybe if there is a next version synced with 2008.8, rootfs
will need a global update, not via opkg ?
(or the coming Qtopia 4.4 will need such a rootfs manual update ?)
