LinuxDevices.com has an
overview of the Yocto Project
just announced by the Linux Foundation. "Unlike build systems based on shell scripts or makefiles, the Yocto Project automates the fetching of sources from upstream sources or local project repositories, says the project. Its customization architecture is said to allow the choice of a wide variety of footprint sizes as well as control over the choice or absence of components such as graphics subsystems, visualization middleware, and services.
Yocto is based on the GNOME-derived Poky Linux, a well established
platform-independent, cross-compiling build system that uses the same
architecture as the OpenEmbedded build system.
