Have a look here:
This is the file that drives the build bot I'm playing with.
We'll be keeping it up to date until we have something better.
I'll try to blog about this today.

Yes they are up-to-date There are no secret copies.

Yes, there's some of those concerns. However, most of these components
don't carry big secrets, and we're looking at releasing Maemo more
frequently than the products. The biggest constrain is quite simple.
Prioritization of limited resources ;-)
Expect things to happen and to move in the right direction, but to
take time.
