Re: SSTATE corruption

Alex is very much correct, you should not see corruption. But I think more detail is in order.
If your distro repository is a "garden variety" set of image recipes and recipe overrides that pull upstream source bundles, then your SSTATE cache should age nicely from release to release.
However, if your source code and associated application files ride along in the same repository as your recipes, or you add your own bbclass functionality, you may want to reconsider keeping SSTATE cache around for too long. There are still some issues to be worked out to make the local file fetcher as reliable as the other fetchers when it comes to keeping your distro buttoned up into one monolithic repository with application level source code trees.
