OpenMoko SVN depends on features not available in

Secondly, I will soon have a new problem. I am currently working on
integrating PackageKit into an OpenMoko build. This will require updates
in OpenMoko package versions as it will require dbus >= 1.1.1. I have
already got dbus 1.1.1 added to OpenEmbedded but I am unsure what the

integrate PackageKit into OpenEmbedded first or into first?

Finally, I think the big questions is whether is
specifically for third party developers, or should core OpenMoko
developers be using it as well.
