Definition: The 2011.03-maintenance branch is a branch made based on the Release-2011.03 release tag in the metadata.

Getting the stable branch

First download the main branch in the usual way

git clone git://git.openembedded.org/openembedded

then take a look at available branches in the main repository

git branch -a

now you can get the stable branch with

git checkout -b 2011.03-maintenance origin/2011.03-maintenance

and verify the branch where you are working now

$ git branch
* 2011.03-maintenance

Dealing with changes

This branch is being run on a 'pull model' where in all changes will be pushed into the branch by Tom Rini. Changes may be submitted via the openembedded-devel mailing list as patches or as git pull requests to branches that reside in some publicly available git tree. Unless specific to code that no longer resides in a non-maintenance branch (ie master here or oe-core / meta-oe / etc) code must be a backport and should say where the code already resides (for ease of review, interoperability checking and so forth). Requests should have [2011.03-maintenance] in the subject line.
