For the ASU branch we do the following:
	- org.openmoko.asu.{dev,stable} is supposed to build without internet (which 
means we never use autorev)

	- Dev's can use autorev on their local machines or do the development the way 
they want to.

	- Dev's can upgrade SRCREV's in asu.dev themselves or poke anyone to upgrade 
(see the mails on this topic), they will go to "stable" after limited testing 
during development. After the release we might introduce a "future 
updates"/testing feed.... to further increase stability

For the real .dev it is a tricky question what to do there. On one hand it is 
supposed to have the latest and newest things as it is for development... I 
have no idea what the best approach would look like.


PS: It get's funny when people try to "downgrade" from the org.openmoko.dev 
branch to org.openmoko.asu.dev...
