Perhaps these two postings may be useful:

For now, andy-tracking is still the place to be. After the update
from upstream, the party will move to a new branch that will be
called simply "openmoko", which will then be maintained by Nelson.
The idea is that "openmoko" will track upstream closely.

"openmoko" can also be the basis for "stable" branches (much like
there are stable branches off Linus' kernel) or branches for other

I would consider all the other branches as obsolete, with the
possible exception of drm-tracking, but I this one is a separate
effort anyway.
