contextkit-maemo is for maemo. contextkit-meego is for meego. MeeGo's
contextkit plugins aren't useful to maemo and most of maemo's aren't
useful to meego. For instance, maemo's battery plugin relies on closed
components such as BME. The open implementation of meego cannot rely on
closed components like that thus it made sense for us to create an
additional plugin that uses UPower instead. In addition to the above
reason, contextkit-meego contains plugins that provide context from
connman and ofono both of which don't exist in maemo.
I'm using the contextkit-meego package on my netbook. It works fine.
