These bugs are coming from OE upstream which is currently merged into the base 
image. Our distro team has a hard time fixing these. Openmoko does not want 
to force you into something - you should have the choice.

It is a daily snapshot of the "base / empty" image. The fact that it is empy 
is not a bug but a feature. You should install your applications of choice, 
e.g. keyboard: illume/qtopia/dasher/$whatever_you_come_up_with, phone apps: 
GTK, Qtopia, FSO, $whatever

Again, many bugs from OE upstream entered that image which we have to fix now.

This wont be the 2008.9 release because it is too buggy. The 2008.9 will focus 
on stabilizing 2008.8.

Our QA team gave us a list of bugs we have to fix prior to the release. We 
have to fix them first and then release.
