Dealing with changes
This branch is being run on a 'pull model' where in all changes will be pushed into the branch by Tom Rini. Changes may be submitted via the openembedded-devel mailing list as patches or as =git pull= requests to branches that reside in some publicly available git tree. Unless specific to code that no longer resides in a non-maintenance branch (ie master here or oe-core / meta-oe / etc) code must be a backport and should say where the code already resides (for ease of review, interoperability checking and so forth).
