1Poky
2====
3
4Poky is an integration of various components to form a complete prepackaged
5build system and development environment. It features support for building
6customised embedded device style images. There are reference demo images
7featuring a X11/Matchbox/GTK themed UI called Sato. The system supports
8cross-architecture application development using QEMU emulation and a
9standalone toolchain and SDK with IDE integration.
10
11Additional information on the specifics of hardware that Poky supports
12is available in README.hardware. Further hardware support can easily be added
13in the form of layers which extend the systems capabilities in a modular way.
14
15As an integration layer Poky consists of several upstream projects such as
16BitBake, OpenEmbedded-Core, Yocto documentation and various sources of information
17e.g. for the hardware support. Poky is in turn a component of the Yocto Project.
18
19The Yocto Project has extensive documentation about the system including a
20reference manual which can be found at:
21 http://yoctoproject.org/documentation
22
23OpenEmbedded-Core is a layer containing the core metadata for current versions
24of OpenEmbedded. It is distro-less (can build a functional image with
25DISTRO = "nodistro") and contains only emulated machine support.
26
27For information about OpenEmbedded, see the OpenEmbedded website:
28 http://www.openembedded.org/

30Where to Send Patches
31=====================
32
33As Poky is an integration repository, patches against the various components
34should be sent to their respective upstreams.
35
36bitbake:
37 bitbake-devel@lists.openembedded.org
38
39meta-yocto:
40 poky@yoctoproject.org
41
42Most everything else should be sent to the OpenEmbedded Core mailing list. If
43in doubt, check the oe-core git repository for the content you intend to modify.
44Before sending, be sure the patches apply cleanly to the current oe-core git
45repository.
46 openembedded-core@lists.openembedded.org
47
48Note: The scripts directory should be treated with extra care as it is a mix
49 of oe-core and poky-specific files.
