Can I use west to initialize multiple working directories?My understanding is that *west* installation (i.e. the tool itself) is
indeed single/global (though you probably can work that around using
Python virtualenv's). But west can definitely manage multiple local
"workspaces". I figure the requirement for those is that they don't
overlap (which includes containment).
For example, I historically had Zephyr checkout under
~/projects-3rdparty/Embedded/Zephyr/ , and when west became
unavoidable, I converted that path to a west "workspace".
Recently, I wanted to create another workspace, and tried to do that
under the same ~/projects-3rdparty/Embedded/Zephyr/, but it failed with
a message similar to the above. So, I went to create another workspace
under ~/projects-3rdparty/Embedded/zephyr-googleiot/ , which worked.
