Greetings to all !
Recently it was made apparent that bootstrap-image was generating images
that could not fit in flash restricted devices (<=4MB)
Koen has pushed angstrom-minimal-image which uses task-boot and as a result
generates images significally smaller.(800K in a jffs2 fs)
The only drawback into this (IMHO) is in the naming of the package.
Adding a distro name infront of an image package gives the impression that
this is distro specific and not a "generic" one.
I tried to push to the rep a more "generic" minimal-image.bb which was
almost identical to angstrom-minima-image but Koen had dis-approved the
commit as duplicate.
In my opinion if angstrom-minimal-image is not distro specific should be
renamed to minimal-image or if it is distro specific a minimal-image.bb
should be created.
I discussed the matter with Koen on irc but we could not come to a
conlusion, so i am asking for the opinions of others on this, as i believe
is a issue which has to be solved to avoid any future problems.
