yes, it is built on angstrom, but there have been some subtle and very
important changes made by om, which are not compatible with angstrom
anymore. it's a fork. so, just as one should beware installing
packages built for debian onto ubuntu, the user should also be careful
putting angstrom stuff on om2009. some will work, some won't

i think there were some temporary problems with the om build process,
and it will be fixed in a few days, meanwhile everything is offline to
stop people breaking their installs of om2009
