> Hi,
> attached patch puts newconfig into retirement. It served us well for
> years, but having to maintain two build systems is a burden I no longer
> see a need for.
> I spare you posting all deleted files with their content, prefixed
> entirely with "-", so I ran svn with --no-diff-deleted.
> The only file changed was util/abuild/abuild, where I dropped support
> for "-o", ie. building with newconfig.
> For your service, I added "svn st" output right before the patch, so you
> can more easily see what's going on.
> Experience with CBFS indicates that committing this patch will lead some
> people to migrate that otherwise wouldn't be bothered, no matter how
> long we wait for boards to be migrated.
> If you really can't move, it's easily possible to stay at the revision
> before this patch until you can.
> If you require newconfig builds for comparison, it's easily possible to
> stay at the revision before this patch.
> For everything else, we'll gladly assist you with moving over.
> Signed-off-by: Patrick Georgi <patrick.georgi at coresystems.de>
