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 [1] and fetch 
IPK package (which is in Debian package format).
