Hello,

The Warrior branch of Poky has had its last official dot release.
It
will be moving to Community support and EOL within 6 weeks if no
one
steps up.
If someone is interested in taking on the responsibilities of
maintaining the "Warrior" branch moving forward, please email this
list.
I have an interest in keeping warrior branch alive in poky and meta-
oe,
and I'll take this responsibility since noone else seems to be
interested.

Please look at the
https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Stable_Release_and_LTS for what
will
be expected.
I have some ideas, but not yet a fixed plan how I will set this up.
Ok. FWIW we are struggling a little with keeping the older releases
building on the autobuilder as the workers change. We do have plans for
handling this with buildtools but its not rolled out on the older
autobuilder-helper branches.

I do have work in progress working with Jeremy for thud
(contrib/rpurdie/thud), much of which should apply to warrior too
(contrib/rpurdie/warrior is a guess). I just really want to highlight
that there may be some initial work to get these older branches to the
point where they continue to work on the infrastructure.

I think we may have to accept backporting a lot of patches in helper to
bring things more into sync with master/dunfell to make all this easier
to maintain/get working.

Cheers,

Richard
