Just my 2 euro cents
I am not sure how many of you are building multimachine distro's but the old
system was not a very good solution.
We are building a distro for a number of machines x86 arch (i486, i585,
i686), a number of powerpc targets and recently mipsel and puttinng
everything in a giant ipk pool is not the best of solutions.
As far as i can understand its a case where single machine distro's made
use of this OE feature while multimachine distros had to look for other ways
(i.e post processing).
With the recent changes it seems that single machine distro's also need to
do some post-processing in order to get going and people are upset about
>From what i read so far there seems to be 2 solutions
Either allow for the old behaviur of OE through some 'switch' and let the
distro mainter decide what do to or document the new way of handling feeds.
In my case i would prefer the second option, as both single and multimachine
distro's could use the same mechanism to update their feeds
