I don't manage any repos and you're getting outside my realm of 
expertise.  My expectation is that you shouldn't need both mistral and 
scirocco selected, and that doing so might break things.  The way it 
_should_ work is that you should select the dist that corresponds to the 
OS image installed on your device.  Folks using 2.01.2006.26-8 should 
select mistral, folks using 2.2006.39-14 should select scirocco.

Since that's not always possible, I've been selecting the "correct" dist 
(scirocco for me) when it is available, and mistral when that's all 
there is.  This has been working well for me.  It is always possible for 
a bad repo to bork your device but many folks are using the config 
described above and will report such breakage as a bug.
