[Luo Zhenhua-B19537] The SDK is convenient for the user who has no/limited internet access, we created corresponding tags for each SDK on git.freescale.com, fsl-sdk-v1.3 is for SDK 1.3. BTW, packages in meta-fsl-ppc-private is not published to FSL public git repository due to legal reason, we are working on moving all stuffs into public Yocto layers.

[Luo Zhenhua-B19537] Yocto in git.freescale.com is equivalent to each SDK release, and poky/meta-oe in this repository might not be the recent. Yocto in upstream git repository is compatible with recent upstream layers(poky, meta-oe), so meta-fsl-ppc is also updated along with update with poky/meta-oe.

[Luo Zhenhua-B19537] meta-fsl-ppc in SDK and git.freescale.com is equivalent. You can checkout related tag.

[Luo Zhenhua-B19537] Yes.

[Luo Zhenhua-B19537] This Linux is in the coverage of our testing.
