+This layer is intended to be a central point for realtime related kernel and
+system development. It also contains utilities, and configuration useful for
+tuning a realtime system. It should be useful directly on top of oe-core. It
+should be primarily useful to the following groups:
+ - Anyone working on Linux kernel realtime development (preempt-rt,
+ sched_dealine, posix realtime).
+ - Anyone experimenting with alternative pairing of general purpose
+ OSs and realtime OS divisions. Whether that be AMP, userspace RTOS
+ or realtime hypervisors.
+ - Anyone working on cpu isolation, system partitioning and related userspace
+ applications.
+ - Anyone benchmarking and performance profiling a Linux system.
+This layer depends on:
+URI: git://git.openembedded.org/openembedded-core
+branch: master
+revision: HEAD
+Please see the MAINTAINERS file for information on contacting the
+maintainers of this layer, as well as instructions for submitting patches.
