Although I know this is not the proper list to ask for bitbake questions 
I think this may be interesting not only for me (we all may learn 

Using the above excerpt. Where does the '2:' in front of the version 
come from?

If the version of the package is 1.14.4, why is not?:

PREFERRED_VERSION_xserver-xorg_mx6 = "1.14.4"

I'm sure there must be a reason. I want to learn from people more 
experienced than me.
