I was referring to that repo. Mostly because it's not crowded with too many 
applications in an "undefined" state.
Please don't misunderstand me. I also feel that SHR is the way we'll all be 
going sooner or later. I love Debian but I use Kubuntu as it provides much 
more functionality in a much easier to use way. But I'm a developer myself and 
as such had my share of experience on how long it takes from the first 
enthusiastic steps until a piece of software runs reliably enough for the 
people you aim (too) with this. Not to mention our overall experience with 
stuff from and for OpenMoko. ;-)
