I think we should really modify the default feeds.conf provided with
openwrt-packages.git to explicitely list known-good revisions only, such

src-svn packages svn://

This way we're sure that everybody working with openwrt-xburst is going
to build the same packages resulting in the same image.  

Then upgrading to newer openwrt upstream packages is done centrally
(e.g. by you), _after_ checking that the new upstream revision actually
works.  This way people like me who don't have the time and cpu
resources to test-build config.full_system won't complain all the time

For qi-packages.git I think we can still leave everything as it is,
since these packages are somewhat under our control.
