Subject: [yocto] might it be worth explaining BBMASK more
a bit more pedantry, but is there a more complete example of the use
of BBMASK than the trivial example in the ref and dev manuals?
the ref manual provides this example by way of explanation:
BBMASK = ".*/meta-ti/recipes-misc/"
well, ok, except you occasinally find slight variations like:
BBMASK = "meta-ti/recipes-misc/"
BBMASK = "meta-ti/recipes-misc"
given that there are places where a trailing slash is significant,
are all of the above exactly equivalent? if so, that's worth noting.
also, what about an example showing masking out a couple
directories, or perhaps a single recipe from a layer, and so on? at
the moment, the manuals suggest you can mask multiple recipes but
nowhere do i see the reader being given an actual example of how to do
