Maemo is a really special operation system and in many  ways different than Symbian. One difference is the application manager which is based on catalogues. By default only the Nokia Application catalogue is activated. Maemo Extras, a catalogue featuring a bunch of apps, is deactivated by default but can be activated easily.

However, there are also two other big catalogue – Extras-devel and Extra-testing. Developers upload the newest version of their software to Extras-devel. From there the packages go Extras-testing and finally Extras through an automatic and human Quality Assurance process. This is a repository for developers and regular contributors of specific software projects. The applications in Extras-devel and extra-testing are waiting to be tested and aren’t final. There might occur some error so install apps on your own risk.

In order to add Extras-testing and Extras-devel go to the Application manager, select Application catalogs and then new. Than just fill out the detail:
