 Our QA includes community feedback. If we release early particular elements
in the community will slam us.
 We expect that. If we hold back releases, other elements of the community
will slam us.

 So we expect to be slammed no matter what we do. Fun job ehh?

 Armour plating is required.

The text that is there ("There should be some official updates for
2008.8 setup soon, but in the meantime, you'll have to wait.") is correct.
I've added a warning about buildhost.

I expect that Openmoko will start populating the official Om2008.08 feed
with updates as soon as those updates make their way through QA.

[Although one might ask why the updates need to go through QA when it is now
clear that the release itself happened against the advice of QA ...]
