BitBake meta data layer for Yocto / OpenEmbedded Core, adding update functionality using libostree (OSTree). OSTree features a update mechanism based on GIT concepts. Only changed files can be upgraded on devices in the field, optionally using delta differences. This minimizes data usage, saving cost on metered or otherwise costly connections, such as over-the-air firmware updates.
