I'm glad that the documentation for Gumstix platform are being updated and
better organized after such a long time.
I've some suggestions to make to improve clarity and visibility,
At the " Access Source Code <http://gumstix.org/access-source-code.html> "
page, can Gumstix also point out which upstream (top) tree/repository it is
cloning from so that developers can have a better understanding of where all
works are derived from such that we can also monitored upstream changes
independently and without having to wait for Gumstix to pull changes into
its local repositories.
For example, although X-load has been superseded by the SPL bootloader built
out of the u-boot code base. It's better to keep the documentation of the
old URLs of x-load and its upstream source on the page but with a notice to
tell when it is no longer relevant for which product. For my case, I still
need MLO for Overo COMs with slightly older U-boot.
For the Kernel, I can guess that Gumstix kernel are cloned from Steve's
kernel and Steve's kernel is from Tony Lindgren's tree+patches. (My guess
maybe wrong) (^^,)
For U-boot and X-load, I wish to know which upstream (top-most) tree they
Hope you can add these information to the page.
Thanks in adv.
