What does it mean when a bbappend files does something like the following to a task layer ?

 

do_install() {

         :

}

 

Thanks,

This overwrite the do_install task with "nothing".

The ':' character is needed because do_install() {} is not syntaxically
correct.

However, the do_install_prepend and _append would still apply I think.

Cheers,
