meta-gplv2 ========== 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. 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. For now, they do continue to get minimal testing by the Yocto Project, but this will eventually be stopped, with anyone wanting to use them taking up the maintainership. The current maintainers for the layer are Ross Burton <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Peter Kjellerstedt <email@example.com> Where to Send Patches ===================== For now, patches should be sent to the Yocto mailing list with [meta-gplv2] in the subject line. Before sending, be sure the patches apply cleanly to the intended target branch of the Git repository. Git repository: https://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit.cgi/meta-gplv2/ Mailing list: firstname.lastname@example.org This can be configured within the repository with the commands: git config sendemail.to email@example.com git config format.subjectprefix "meta-gplv2] [PATCH"
