Whiteboard

[hrw 20.11] Status:
- binutils 2.23 works fine - will switch once it got merged into OE-Core
- several recipes are on a way upstream (db, strace, ncurses, mysql)
- we cannot use eglibc/aarch64 from upstream as it is in trunk so too many changes to merge. Will use current one.
- gcc-linaro got updated to 2012.11 and works
- kernel has to stay in layer (as MACHINE specific)
- kernel headers have to stay in layer (as MACHINE specific) but OE-Core will get update to 3.7 after
  release so we will be able to use them.

[hrw 28.11] Status:
- binutils GIT will be needed for GDB to get ptrace() working (not mergable)
- GDB update will be required (not mergable)
- kernel update will be required due to GDB (not mergable)

[hrw 06.12] Status:
- marked linux-libc-headers as BLOCKED cause we need 3.7.0 release for it - once it be released I will send patch to OEML
- we need to host some patches for eglibc/libffi cause they are huge and OE does not want to keep such monsters in repo - will put those on people.linaro.org/~toolchain/

[hrw 13.12.12] Status
- LTP item assigned to Riku
- attr got fixed by Riku
- I send new set of fixes to ML

[fboudra, 2012-12-20] Upstreaming effort, re-target to 13.01.

[hrw 2012-01-31] Updates WIs for 13.02

[hrw 2013-03-22] X11 stuff will have to wait. For some reason it does not work in my kernel builds. We will not waste developers time on getting it fixed.

[hrw 2013.04.05] gcc-4.8 builds went fine. There was a problem with paths as /lib and /lib64 were used at same time. Kind of fix proposed.

[hrw 2013.04.11] moved some WIs from other blueprints
[hrw 2013.04.22] refreshed (lib)memcached recipes sent to OE ML.
[hrw 2013.04.24] marked dwarfutils as postponed cause it requires serious rewrite of patches to be OE mergable. Marked 'build world' as done as we went though OE failures already.

Meta:
Headline: OpenEmbedded now contains the 64-ready components for the ARMv8 bootstrap.
Acceptance: Gcc, binutils, glibc, kernel all integrated at OpenEmbedded, to have enough for image builds/publishing.
