(again I replied directly to Nicolas and forgot to include maemo-developers

This is due to  a design decision we have taken, and it looks like it
creates some confusion.

SDK repository consists of three parts: SDK, development tools that you can
download to device, and source code for open source packages of OS2008.
Software that exists in OS2008 is not necessarily part of SDK. Unfortunately
the design decision is that all of the different parts are in the same big
package list.

osso-xterm is part of the OS2008 image, and that's why the source package is
there. It is not in SDK, and that's why binary package is not there.

We are planning to create a division for the content that we now have in SDK

Best regards,
