openembedded-core-29143391029bdb1a5b23724017acb363b11ed6a8.tar.bz2 Avoid dependency on ${PN} from ${PN}-<plugin>
A recent change to this file added a runtime dependency from ${PN} on ${PN}-meta since users tend to believe that installing the main package will bring in all of the individual plugin packages, which previously was not the case. However, since all plugin packages had a dependency on the main package, this caused all plugin packages to be pulled in whenever one plugin package was installed... Since the main package is now guaranteed to be empty, there is no reason for the plugin packages to depend on it any more. Signed-off-by: Peter Kjellerstedt <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
