Description : useful development tools from the barebox source tree
Barebox is a bootloader for booting Linux on embedded devices. Its
source tree contains some useful tools which can also be used
- bareboxenv: generate or read a barebox environment archive
- bareboximd: Extract metadata from a barebox image
- imx-usb-loader: USB image loader for i.MX series processors
- omap3-usb-loader, omap4_usbboot: USB image loaders for OMAP processors
I plan to package the last two tools into separate binary packages.
With certain effort, barebox itself could also be packaged as a
bootloader, but the host tools should suffice for now.
I'm not a Debian maintainer mysqlf, but Uwe (Cc'd) has already offered
to sponsor this package.
