Open AVB

Intel created the Open AVB repository to encourage collaborative source
code development for AVB technology enabling. By publishing the source code,
our intent is to encourage standardization, stability and inter-operability 
between multiple vendors. This repository - created by the Intel LAN Access Division,
but not necessarily limited to Intel products - contains primarily network 
building block components - drivers, libraries, example applications and 
daemon source code - that are required to build an AVB system.

This repository does not include all components required to build a full 
production AVB system (e.g. a turnkey solution to stream stored or live 
audio or video content).

Some simple example applications will be provided which illustrate the
flow - but a professional AVB system requires a full media stack -
including audio and video inputs and outputs, media processing elements,
and various graphical user interfaces. Various companies provide such integrated

to identify suspected hits of GPL code. Intel will also perform vulnerability 
scans of patches in an attempt to find various coding errors such as memory leaks,
