Re: [Zephyr-users] Introducing west, Zephyr's meta-tool

Hi Carles,
Note that we have not at any point considered moving away from GitHub. The plan is to adapt to what the service offers and try to find a solution that works well with it. This is also one of the reasons we are first introducing west without actually splitting the ext/ folder into multiple external repos: we want to expose users to west before we start doing more radical changes.
Well good, though Im not sure what problem does west solves then? For
pulling it sounds like submodules is the preferable solution (to linux
folks at least):

I agree with Luiz here, what does west provide that submodules doesn't provide? Why do I and others now need yet another piece of software to build Zephyr code (python)?
Thanks,
Jamie
