OpenEmbedded eV General Assembly

We have a short administrative meeting before starting the Developer meeting. All are welcome for this.

  • Proposal to dissolve the current e.V. and re-constituting it in the U.S. to reduce the administrative burden for the project.
  • Define a method for identifying lapsed memberships.
  • Proxy form File:Proxy instructions-oe.pdf


  • Standards for BSP behavior. (Crofton)
  • Tentative: User/group definitions. Distribution wide (uid/gid) vs layer wide (primary group, path, description, etc for users). (Saur)
  • LayerIndex feature requests (tlwoerner)
    • build feedback (autobuilders and off-site)
    • master branch parsability
  • Systemd packaging. As new things appear, they are lumped into one package. Update split? (Crofton relaying info)
  • meta-yocto -> meta-poky. People are still spending too much time explaining reality. (Crofton)
  • OVERRIDE syntax: is it time to reconsider _?
  • How to make it easy to setup a system "the systemd way"? New DISTRO_FEATURE or IMAGE_FEATURE? (Saur)
    • Link /bin -> /usr/bin, /lib -> /usr/lib, etc.
    • Change ${systemd_unitdir} to /usr/lib.
    • Make the systemctl wrapper install in ${systemd_unitdir} rather than ${systemconf}/systemd.
      • This should also happen when installing a package in runtime.
  • There are still a lot of projects (too many?) not using OE (tlwoerner)
    • why aren't more projects using OE?
    • how can we get more people using OE?
    • who should we be targeting? (build people (obviously), kernel devs? user-space devs?)
