This layer is intended to be a central point for networking-related packages and configuration. It should be useful directly on top of oe-core and compliments meta-openembedded. It should be primarily useful to the following groups: - Anyone building a small networking device (eg. a home router / bridge / switch). - Anyone wanting to add network services to their device (eg. anything that might benefit from a small ftp/tftp server)
