Not knowing anything about bitbake and ipkg, I found this page pretty confusing. it should mention what ipkg is to start with. And link to http://www.handhelds.org/moin/moin.cgi/Ipkg

I stopped reading several times at "Prerequisites - You need a configured openmoko development tree." Is that true ? Do you need that to "Create an ipk package from sources" ?

I'm guessing the directions on http://www.handhelds.org/moin/moin.cgi/BuildingIpkgs work just fine for openmoko; that link is also used on http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Opkg

Most of this page is about writing bitbake recipes to create ipkgs. If I understand correctly, this is needed to get the ipkg creation into your compile process. If I'm correct, then the page should be renamed. And I shouldn't have been reading it in the first place :-)
