This is a really nice tool but I find that the layout of the FSL

placed in BBLAYERS_FETCH_DIR which is set to COREBASE (sources/poky)
otherwise meta-openembedded gets duplicated.
The layerindex-fetch tool makes assumptions that turn out to not be
true if you start off (as you did) by using the fsl community repo.
Two assumptions have, simply, collided :-)

Right - I realize this is an issue or invalid assumption about the fsl
community repo. I'm thinking that repo should be perhaps reworked to
move its layers within the poky dir to avoid this and allow using
'bitbake-layers layerindex-fetch' as its such a useful tool.

You can override the definition of BBLAYERS_FETCH_DIR in your
conf/local.conf (using an '='). If you set it to the full base
location of where the fsl community repo has put your layers,
layerindex-fetch should then work as expected?
Setting BBLAYERS_FETCH_DIR to my sources dir still ends up with
duplicates after a 'bitbake-layers layerindex-fetch meta-networking'
yet now there are no duplicate repos (just duplicate dirs in BBLAYERS)

${BSPDIR}/sources/poky/meta \
${BSPDIR}/sources/poky/meta-poky \
${BSPDIR}/sources/meta-openembedded/meta-oe \
${BSPDIR}/sources/meta-openembedded/meta-multimedia \
${BSPDIR}/sources/meta-freescale \
${BSPDIR}/sources/meta-freescale-3rdparty \
${BSPDIR}/sources/meta-freescale-distro \
/tmp/yocto/sources/meta-openembedded/meta-oe \
^^^^ this one shouldn't be here and creates 'Duplicate inclusion'
warnings if it is
/tmp/yocto/sources/meta-openembedded/meta-python \
/tmp/yocto/sources/meta-openembedded/meta-networking \

Perhaps bitbake-layers could be made smarter about avoiding duplicate
dirs in this case.
