The Yocto Project now provides two new layers related to In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI): meta-ivi and meta-systemd. These layers are contributed and maintained by Wind River Automotive Solutions, as part of Wind River's GENIVI Baseline Integration Team (BIT) contribution. The new layers will be maintained in coordination with the releases of metadata layer combinations.
meta-ivi is meant to provide long-term support for IVI embedded systems, in concert with GENIVI's commitment to driving the broad adoption of an In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) open-source development platform.
meta-systemd provides temporary systemd support to solve a short-term structural issue of the GENIVI architecture. It will be maintained until systemd support is merged directly into the core OpenEmbedded metadata, hence obsoleting it.
UPDATE: meta-systemd in this repository is now deprecated in favor of the meta-systemd layer in meta-oe.
