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
There are changes to both bitbake and oe-core required. You'll have to look back at the oe-core mailing list to find the right set to backport.

We have backported the items to our 1.2 (7.0 Denzil) based system, but I'm not aware of anyone who is using it in 1.1 (6.0 Edison).
