Do you have the source code and build instructions available alongside these
packages, or are you expecting people to blindly trust that these binaries
are not infected with malware?  What are the quality processes that you
employ to make sure that nothing untoward gets into your feed?

Also, if you are going to have GPL programs in this feed, where are the
sources going to be published?

Note that adding packages to OE, and then just adding the package name to
task-openmoko-feed.bb, will enable those packages to be available from a
number of official and unofficial feeds, and also automatically comply with
GPL licenses.
