I thought I did, but now I'm even more confused than before (though it 
does seem to be builiding something... ;)

Do I want to do this:

mtn --db=/stuff/ checkout

## OM's wiki leaves the next three lines out:
mtn --db=/stuff/ pull

cd /stuff/ && mtn update
cd /stuff/org.openembedded.dreambox && mtn update

bitbake fso-image

or this:

git init
git pull git://
bitbake fso-image

Both lead to a coherent looking bitbake setup.  The git way is how the 
feeds are made, right?  The wiki says to use monotone.  What's the 
difference between the two repositories?

Also, the wikis are broken.  Should this go away:

or should this:

I can do a three-way diff, and try to merge one into the other.  I'm 
pretty sure the (unmaintained?) OM one should be replaced with a link to 
the (maintained?) OE one, and the gtk theme stuff stuff should live 
somewhere else at OM.

Sound good?
