Re: What is GMAE?
So instead of back port, have you looked into adt-installer to address your need. It's sysroot is based on target images. The only downside is it's based on opkg and ipk if that's not your default package format.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Richard's concern is there maybe some legacy user that >preferred the toolchain target. With the latest changes in toolchain generation which really maps to target images, probably we should unplug to legacy ones to make the toolchain generation more streamline. Thoughts or concerns?I'm one of the users that is stuck using Edison 6.0. I'm desperate for the ability to generate a toolchain and sysroot that matches our target. Right now I have to build meta-toolchain and then manually look in the tmp for sysroot-destdir related stuff from our build and copy it to the sysroot in /opt/poky and hand that out to developers.
When our sister group overseas makes a change that effects the sysroot it breaks our build and I have to figure out what happened and manually adjust our sysroot to fix the problem. I sure would like to be able to just do an update and then bitbake the toolchain to pick up the changes. I figure we are stuck with Edison for a while ... can I back port these toolchain features you all are talking about to Edison?
