Thanks, but I'm still confused.

Based on Lauren Post's email from 6/29 with the subject: "Freescale 
meta-freescale announcement of new layer",  I thought  meta-freescale 
was going to be hosted this year at


Is this still going to be used?  Someone please explain the purpose for 
these two repos with the same name.

So we have 4 repos for QorIQ: i) meta-freescale on github; 
meta-freescale on freescale.com;  iii) meta-fsl-ppc on yoctoproject.org; 
iv) meta-fsl-arm on yoctoproject.org.

What happens now to meta-fsl-arm and meta-fsl-ppc? Are these dead for 
new QorIQ / Layerscape development?

And is there a mailing list to see when patches get applied to the 
meta-freescale repo on gitub.com/Freescale, or are you just expecting us 
to watch it via github?  You have always done such a great job letting 
us know when patches are applied to meta-fsl-arm.

BTW, the linux-qoriq kernel built with ls1021a_defconfig also failed to 
build in the same way as it did when being built with the linux-ls1 
recipe in meta-fsl-arm.  At this point, I'm guessing there is a tools 
issue, since I can build the same commit with the SDK1.8 (stable) 
toolchain and config.  I'll dig a little deeper, but please let me know 
if this is a known issue.
