About the advantages of opkg.org
* a software dedicated website, so that I can easily know the new and
updated softs with rss feeds (I don't have to filter the new entries in the
openmoko wiki and get lost among the amount of information)
* a small description for each software (you can do this on a wiki page, I
know), and each soft has the same description page template
* at the moment, there is a small number of distro (SHR and OM are the most
used), but this does not say that it will stay forever, so it could be hard
to ask the developper of each new platform to integrate it on the repos
* a lot of visitors
* you do not have to store the ipk on opkg. A link or description to your
repo is OK . So you can do both : put a description on opkg, and put the
package in the distro feeds

  I believe a portal containing a updated list of all softwares is great for
the users who are not always connected to the mailing lists and wikis. For
example, I saw the Hackable:A developpers have released a great rss reader
application ( https://trac.hackable1.org/trac/wiki/FeedReader ) . It could
be used by users using another debian based distribution (fyp or other), but
there is no way for them to know. If this app was in opkg, everyone would
know (I know, this is not a good examplen, as opkg is only for ipk package
and not deb, but you understand the meaning :D )
