I installed the raster build this morning which included all the 
relevant feeds for au stable. I've opkg updated and upraded with no 
issues, well, outside the usual glitches you find in om2008.

All the repos provided in the image I obtained were for 
downloads.openmoko.org which is the currently active branch. It appears 
the image is only modified in so far as the scripts and configuration so 
as long a you don't overwrite configs, everything stays the same. That 
may not be true in the future but it seems to be fine now.

Just make sure your feeds are for downloads.openmoko.org and aren't 
pointing to testing and you should be right.

In the end, this is an educated guess so YMMV. No one has actually 
confirmed any of this since I've been listening in.
