==========
This layer contains a set of recipes corresponding to old, obsolete versions of
-software that are GPLv2 licensed where the upstreams have moved to GPLv3 licenses.
+software that are GPLv2 licensed where the upstreams have moved to GPLv3
+licenses.
These were part of OE-Core until it was realised they are a ticking timebomb
-with regard to security updates and general maintenance. By splitting into a separate
-layer, it's hoped people realise these may not be the best solution to the
-"no GPLv3 problem" and it should also make it clear there is a different quality of
-service applied to these recipes.
