Hello Jon,

Thanks for your comment. I will try to answer.
This change is to include following bug fix:
I can also see we've had multiple RC versions in the past but in principle, I'm
not against your suggestion to have master-next, etc. So where should we go
from here?

My recommendation would be to pull that patch out and apply it directly on
top of v2.5.0 (assuming that is feasible). Maybe even asking the upstream
zephyr project to port this to v2.5.0 and make it
v2.5.1 would be the optimal solution.
[Naveen] We can wait for stable release. If it is urgent, we can carry patches for bug fixes, in case upstream does not give dot release !

As far as a master-next branch, that would be up to Naveen.

Kind regards

Do we really want to have Zephyr on a release candidate? IMHO, we
should never be doing this, as we should want the kernel in meta-zephyr to
be as stable as possible. If this is really desired, perhaps a master-next
branch for things like this.
