Interesting! I'll take a look on that.

Weird, the git tree should be opened to everybody. It should even be
visible via cgit:

The patches we've made on the top of meta-raspberrypi are those:

441a21c07ca4 rpi-hwup-image: add all gstreamer plugins modules
b9e0963d0d72 Add default root password
e9b460b1939b Enable gstreamer good/bad/ugly plugins
3cc7315bfb60 cmdline.txt: use systemd init
ceba4225b851 reorganize the stuff under rpi-hwup-image
065ade09e480 Add the default providers for Raspberry PI
9700d30e1aa4 Change cmdline.txt to make it boot without waiting for debug
3d39e3539bc5 Add sshd to the image
2a4d4e169de2 Add wayland/weston to the build
9524e10d10e8 Make userland to build

They fix some conflicts with Tizen build and adds packages at the already
existing rpi-hwup-image, in order to merge what's there at the Tizen common
recipe, plus enables some additional Gstreamer plugins.

Feel free to join us and send us patches. The next step is to enable
EGL on Wayland/Weston. I think we should also have a profile to enable
X11 on it, as some interesting applications depend on some X11 libraries
that aren't built. I guess some X11 libraries only have .spec files, but
it misses bitbake recipes.
