I don't understand why openmoko don't just start with the FSO builds, and make the official openmoko distribution simply an image with different contents, but built with the same FSO Makefile and same package revisions.
It seem that Openmoko has employed a new distribution manager each time they change the distribution direction (Gtk, Qt, FSO, ...), and each one makes the same mistake (IMHO) of forking everything and trying to do it themselves instead of simply working with an existing community-driven distribution (like Angstrom or FSO) and simply making a new image produced by an existing distribution in the mainline of OpenEmbedded.
