 The instructions will be slightly different depending on whether Linux, Windows or Mac is used. There are setup instructions for using **Windows/Mac** at https://github.com/crops/docker-win-mac-docs/wiki. When referring to **Windows/Mac** in the rest of the document, it is assumed the instructions at https://github.com/crops/docker-win-mac-docs/wiki were followed.
+Note that the poky-container should *not* be used to obtain the meta-data, but
