Yes; this will host the releases done until upstreamed.

Once the transition is done for meta-freescale, community development
will focus on meta-freescale but as this is still not clear when all
merge will be complete and stable I've been keeping meta-fsl-arm
update and is my main test platform.

I have not been sending meta-freescale merges here to avoid flooding
it. It is still not ready for production use and then I assumed people
wishing to participate would follow the repository. I can start
sending it though...
