Repository is missing. Of course that's not an easy question, because 
for example if you write:

Tested on: Om 2007.2, Om 2008.8, Debian, FSO

then how do you specify repository? Of course we will not specify how 
easy/difficult it is to install on e.g. Debian or not even FSO. But 
maybe we could pick the "mainstream" distro and say one of:

Om 2008.8 repository
Om 2008.8 community repository (Multiverse)
an external repository e.g. Angstrom repository
must be compiled from source

could be an important factor for users. E.g. this Pidgin thing is on 
Angstrom repo, I spent like a hour hunting depending packages!

That is so far from a simple click in the installer. What do you recommend?

(Anyway, has a red warning 
about mixing repositories, even a citation from an Openmoko developer, 
and then the first paragraph tells me to add Angstrom repo. So what now? 
Can someone with the needed knowledge clarify this collision please?)
