Git SCM for LTIB

Hello everybody,

I have i.MX 6 Quad Sabre-SD.

I want to build up a repository which contains sub-repositories for LTIB using Git since I might want to commit some patches for it. I'm familiar with Android's 'repo' and already build up a Git server using both Gitolite and Gerrit. What I want to know is can I make a Git-repo for LTIB? Where is the commit logs inside L3.0.35_4.1.0_130816_source.tar.gz's packages. And after I ran ./L3.0.35_4.1.0_130816_source/install, what files it put into my hard drive should I keep in the SCM?

Thanks for your attention.

I advice you to move to Yocto. It has many benefits in doing this move, mainly:

  • nicer community
  • up to date software stack
  • newer BSPs easy to adopt
  • GIT friendly
  • easier to get company support / consulting (we do it)
  • big support range

O.S. Systems is the maintainer of meta-fsl-arm Yocto layer support[1]. We’ve been working on it since December of 2011.  Currently in the upcoming 1.5 release[2] it already provides support for 34 i.MX based boards.

That is what Yocto exactly does. If you can move to Yocto, do it. LTIB is provided as a single tarball and there is no git repository. So either you git-initialize the ltib folder and git-ignore the rpm folder (tmp folder is the counterpart in Yocto), or move to Yocto. I will go for the second option.
