This list is as good a place as any! :)

Its relatively easy to arrange for a git repository. The main things we
ask are that it has clearly defined maintainership (a clear maintainer
and submission process) and a clear scope. Do you have any specific BSPs
in mind?
Maintainership would be straight forward. Not sure about submissions process, what is done for meta-intel today?
Hi Kumar,

For meta-intel, it's pretty simple and is summarized by this blurb from
the meta-intel MAINTAINERS file:

"Please submit any patches against meta-intel BSPs to the Yocto mailing
list (yocto@...)."

Basically, new patches get submitted to the mailing list, go through the
standard on-list comment and review process, and then get pulled into
master by whoever maintains the BSP when everything looks good.

Hope that helps,


BSP would be for Freescale PowerPC SoC and the reference designs produced by FSL for them.

The wiki is available to host information and we can work out links on
the website as the specific needs come up. Autobuilder support is
something we need to figure out since its a finite resource but we can
likely figure something out there once we understand what kind of BSPs
we're talking about.

Beth Flanagan <elizabeth.flanagan@...> is the person who'd handle
the mechanics of setting up the repository, the name is likely the
hardest bit!
