- <para>Bitbake is being revised fairly often. Periodically it's a good
- idea to check the repository of bitbake stable branches to see if a
- new stable branch is available or if the current branch has been
- revised. Compare your existing bitbake directory with the latest
- bitbake branch in the repository. Your existing bitbake branch and
- its 'last changed revision' number can be found as follows:
- <screen>$ cd $OEBASE/bitbake; svn info</screen>
- If there is a new stable branch, you will want to move or delete
- your existing bitbake directory and repeat the process listed above
- under "To obtain bitbake". If there is no new branch, it is easy to
- update bitbake:
- <screen>$ cd $OEBASE/bitbake; svn update</screen>
