I try to keep master stable, but of course during releases things can break 
for short time. You can checkout bu tag (e.g. git checkout v50) to get what 
was in the release.

No, it's one package. The compile-time differences (#ifdef GTA04) are only in 
the qtmoko package. Additional apps dont have such #ifdefs.

I used svn to git import, because i want all my apps in git on github.

Yes, for releases i am just doing:

	git pull

very simple and it takes a very long time ;-)

Btw an old qemu buildhost is still on sf downloads [1]. But now i am using 
different kernel which can use 1GB of ram.
