Frans, I'm not going to google IRC and mailing list archives looking for
similar remarks about Angstrom.

I think these remarks come from discussion over the pandaboard u-boot
situation? If so, let's consider these options:
1) Remove the pandaboard machine from OE since it does not build for
2) Force Koen to update the recipe to something that builds.
3) Do nothing.
No one is happy with the set of options, but the reality is some distros
use source mirrors and do not have issues. Distros that do not use
source mirrors are going to have problems with this and other recipes,
so the onus is on them to resolve these issues. Resolving this is issue
does not revolve around updating the recipe and pushing it un tested for
the Panda, since this is not something that can be tested on another set
So until someone who has a panda and the time and patience to work with
u-boot, minimal will not work for panda. This is because the minimal
distro is supposed to not use advanced OE features such as source
mirrors and PREFERRED_VERSION pinning. Because of these decisions, it is
entirely possible that minimal will not build for all combination by design.
