That's undecided. We are currently trying to figure out which update
mechanism is a good fit for Yocto. Depending on the outcome of that and
available resources, we may or may not have the time to support

I've started a Wiki page
https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/System_Update - rudimentary at the
moment, but might as well be mentioned already now.

Perhaps you can say a few words about your usage of swupd and what you
liked or didn't like about it? Note that performance will become better
with the upcoming update.
