I've got a Gumstix Overo running on a custom board with only a serial console interface (no wired/wireless network). I've built a custom root filesystem image including the python and python-pyserial packages, but I would like to add the python-threading package. This doesn't seem to be available from git://gitorious.org/gumstix-oe/mainline.git, but is available through the unstable package feed. I can boot the Gumstix on a Tobi expansion board and install the package to the onboard flash, but ideally would like it built as part of my SD card root filesystem image. I guess one option is to find a suitable python-threading Bitbake recipe - how might I do this, and are there any other options?

I installed python and python-modules and that appeared to have installed  threading.
python and python-modules in the recipe.

I haven't installed python-threading just python-modules
