* rm_work_and_downloads.bbclass: more aggressively minimize disk usagePatrick Ohly2017-01-201-0/+33
rm_work.bbclass never deletes downloaded files, even if they are not going to be needed again during the build. rm_work_and_downloads.bbclass is more aggressive in minimizing the used disk space during a build, but has other disadvantages: - sources required by different recipes need to be fetched once per recipe, not once per build - incremental builds do not work reliably because sources get removed without ensuring that sources gets fetched again That makes rm_work_and_downloads.bbclass useful for one-time builds in a constrained environment (like a CI system), but not for general use.
