Thanks for all the info Otavio.  I'm assuming your attention to 
meta-fsl-arm is primarily for i.MX. Please let me know if you are also 
testing LS1 (e.g., ls1021a-twr) now using meta-fsl-arm.

And I still need to figure out which repo(s) I should use to most 
effectively develop & test with the changes coming for Yocto 1.9.  I 
think I want to work with the github meta-freescale repo, especially 
since I need to build images for both ARM and Power.  Please let me know 
if you disagree and think I'm just asking for headaches due to a lack of 

Asking another way, are people testing against the github meta-freescale 
repo / layer?
