The Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) project aims to provide an open-source base layer (OSBL) for embedded systems that require super long-term support (SLTS). OSBL is composed of the CIP kernel source code, and the CIP Core source packages. CIP Core source packages are a list of Debian Long Term Support (LTS) source packages that members of the CIP project consider important and want to sponsor.
CIP core has two profiles:
The CIP Core project provides example filesystem images using available build and image generation tools. Currently, we are using meta-debian for Deby, and ISAR for isar-cip-core. However, we are open to the submission of new reference implementations using other build tools (e.g. Debos).
The main goals of CIP Core are:
The list of CIP Core packages and the process to add or remove packages is described here.
Deby is built with poky and meta-debian, a layer for the poky build system that allows cross-building file system images from Debian source packages (see Deby slides pdf). Deby does not use Yocto/OE source code.
