Hi Louai,

> The README provides a good overview:

> Is this based on "Qt for Device Creation" (
http://www.qt.io/qt-for-device-creation/)? At least the README mentions it.
A while ago I wanted to give Qt for Device Creation a try for a hobby
project but it seems to be commercially licensed only and there was only a
30 day free trial available. That still seems to be the case according to
the website. Could you please clarify the licensing? It looks as if the
layer itself is GPLv3-licensed. What about the boot2qt components?

> meta-boot2qt builds on meta-qt5 to provide amongst other things more up to
> date versions of Qt [1] and the above automotive packages [2]. It includes
> a poky-based reference distro, but the recipes can certainly be used
> independently.
> meta-boot2qt also provides support for a lot of devices. Currently this
> includes the i.MX6, i.MX7, Rcar Gen 2, Raspberry Pi 1/2/3, Jetson
> Pro/Tegra, VirtualBox, Intel. The full list can be seen in our layer init
> script [3].
> The layer is developed in the open through Qt Code Review (i.e. gerrit)
> [4]. I am very happy to see the wide-spread interest in these components.
> We welcome people to work with us to establish one high-quality, canonical
> upstream for the recipes.
> Looks like it is a fully distro layer. I will give it a shot.
