NOPE -- just look at org.openmoko.asu.stable branch or
openmoko/releases/2008.8 tag in the git repository -- it is all there or
what is missing?

there is no probably feeds with updated packages (yet) but you can
always rebuild (or try to) from org.openmoko.asu.testing and
org.openmoko.asu.stable which is pretty much what will come in the

yeap ;-)

org.openembedded.dev (as was mentioned not so long ago in the devel [0]
list and also on wiki [1]) is upstream branch which gets some
updates from openmoko branches once in a while. for your interest in ASU
you better track org.openmoko.asu.dev

that is upstream branch ;-) so it comes from openembedded afaik
