Thanks for the quick response! It is encouraging to know that the
people behind the project are actively involved in the mailing list and
We understand (at least I hope we all do) that you guys are working very
hard. There are so many aspects to a project like this and keeping the
community informed is just one of them.
I'm learning quite a bit about OpenEmbedded from various sources on the
net, and will try to post back any good resources I come across. That
is one thing that I hope this list (and wiki) will be a good resource
