I guess the bigger question is what network services should remain in
rtems itself and work with any stack.
We have at least telnetd and the web server. If they build against the
standard network headers, then they should work any stack that uses
For maintenance, it would be preferable to only have one which all
stacks use. But this means rtems itself could be built with network
services and no stack. I guess this is preferable to having:our own
cross stack network services package.
+ RTEMS kernel
+ pick your stack
+ RTEMS specific network services
+ Ports of standard network services (SNMP, NTP, ACE/TAO, etc)
At this point, it concerns me to add more and more packages because we
tend to not have automation to build/test as many beyond the core RTEMS
as we should.
Based on that alone, I'd prefer to unify "RTEMS specific network services"
under rtems.git for now. If the service is specific to the stack, put it
If it is a third party package, it is an RSB issue.
