Not really. Unless Bruce is using it in some automated scripts that need
to be updated.

The name has been changed. Shall we update the description or is "Supplementary metadata layers to extend the Poky core" still appropriate?

I updated the dev-manual section that tells the user what is in this repo and shows an example of cloning it.  Nothing changes except for the name, which I switched to 'meta-yocto-kernel-extras'.  To me, it appears that the contents of the repo still contain the kernel BitBake append files that you edit to point to your locally modified kernel source files as described in the text.  Within the entire YP documentation set, this little area is the only reference to the old 'poky-extras' repo.  Here is the link to see the changes - 

I am assuming that the name of the repo will indeed be changed to 'meta-yocto-kernel-extras'.  If I don't hear from anyone, I will assume everything is good.

All I need is the name to make some initial changes.
Personally, I'm fine with 'meta-yocto-kernel'. Naming things is
never easy, so I won't agonize over whether or not an "extras"
should be on the end. But the name should be clear that it isn't
the main yocto kernel, it's just a few crappy bbappends that make
working with it locally easier for some :)

So my only counter proposal is: meta-yocto-kernel-extras

I'm going to de-crapify the bbappends so they are more useful, and
have started on that work, but haven't finished it yet.
No strong feelings here. I just wiped out meta-linaro from there
Darren won't mind) and that checksums.ini file.
That's fine, I was just thinking about that last week when I saw Linaro
has a meta-linaro. That's where it belongs, so buh-bye. :-)
