Well, as I just mentioned in my reply to Paul I have produced a document
describing OE-core here:
I don't know that it explicitly describes all the repositories but it does
give some idea of the motivations.

OE-dev provides support for h1940, yes, but I wouldn't expect that to be
maintained in future. However, read on...

So most of the new development should happen either in OE-core or some layer
on top. Hopefully I will soon be able to release a layer called "meta-
handheld" that I have been working on which will provide machine support for
h1940 amongst other handheld devices. If you're using OE-dev now that's OK, if
you have any patches against OE-dev they will be easy to re-apply to meta-
handheld or whereever is appropriate.
