Dunno.  No-one has ever precisely specified what buildhost.openmoko.org
actually builds, so we have no way of knowing what is different ...

I have heard from various people on IRC that buildhost.openmoko.org
builds from the org.openmoko.dev branch of the
git://git.openmoko.org/git/openmoko.git respository - which has quite
different contents from the FSO source code repository.

Note that this is *not* the same branch that the ASU Om2008.8 image
releases are built from.  Go figure ...

No.  Neither for Om2008.8 or any other Om200X.X release.

No.  Trolltech has their own feeds for Qtopia.

Do not mix feeds.  Simple as that.

FSO is for FSO, ASU is for ASU, Qtopia is for Qtopia.  Choose one.
