In OE there are recipes which have maintainer(s) but many lack any
maintainer - often they are changed by someone to adapt to new policies
or are changed by developer which use them for his targets.

Everything is versioned in OE - recipe is for specific version and result
of build is set of packages which are versioned and provide versioned
dependencies. You can check it in Angstrom package browser  and fetch
IPK package (which is in Debian package format).
