+ BitBake will now validate the
+ <link linkend='var-SRCREV'><filename>SRCREV</filename></link>
+ value against the branch.
+ You can specify the branch using the following form:
+ <literallayout class='monospaced'>
+ SRC_URI = "git://server.name/repository;branch=&lt;branchname&gt;"
+ </literallayout>
+ If you do not specify a branch, BitBake looks

+ Alternatively, if you need to bypass this check (e.g.
