There's been a long standing request to move git.linaro.org's web UI
over to cgit. We've just deployed a test version at:
We'd like to get people to try out and share any issues they have. Once
we work through issues, we'd like to get rid of the old gitweb interface
and make this the standard web UI to our git servers.
cgit has a bunch of nice features you should enjoy including:
* Significantly faster
* README support, eg: https://git.linaro.org/cgit/arm/vixl.git/about/
* A much cleaner UI (slightly objective opinion)
* Actively used by the best git sites such as git.kernel.org
Q: The front page is much smaller?
A: I've collapsed many of our lesser used "sections" including the
"people" area so that our most used repos are more prominent.
Q: How does the "about" page work.
A: Just add a file like README, README.txt, README.md, README.rst and it
will automagically work. We can collapse or expand any sections we want,
I just took an initial stab at what seemed obvious to me.
Q: This looks a little different than normal cgit?
A: Yes, I've got to UI patches that have been reviewed, but not yet merged:
Q: What about android-git.linaro.org?
A: It will be converted after we finish with git.l.o
Q: What about our private git server?
A: There is a small privacy issue I'm trying to work out with the
maintainers so it can be used by us:
Apparently the terminal session from the tab next to the script
generating these notes ended up in the other mail, and of course I
didn't check the top of the mail, only the bottom, so here's the
announcement without build logs and fetches:
The first rule of all intelligent tinkering is to keep all the parts.

The Linaro 16.10 release is now available for download!
Using the Android-based images
The Android-based images come in three parts: system, userdata and boot.
These need to be combined to form a complete Android install. For an
explanation of how to do this please see:
If you are interested in getting the source and building these images
yourself please see the following pages:
Using the OpenEmbedded-based images
With the Linaro provided downloads and with ARM’s Fast Models virtual
platform, you can boot a virtual ARMv8 system and run 64-bit binaries.
For more information please see:
Using the Debian-based images
The Debian-based images consist of two parts. The first part is a
hardware pack, which can be found under the hwpacks directory and
contains hardware specific packages (such as the kernel and bootloader).
The second part is the rootfs, which is combined with the hardware pack
to create a complete image. For more information on how to create an
image please see:
