It's a somewhat obscure side point but in the past I've seen Yocto recipe issues come up with one format but not another. When CI has some good processing capacity it might be worth setting up a pipeline that builds with the alternative formats to see if any issues result. Perhaps on an occasional fixed period basis.

Subject: Choose package format between ipk and rpm in GDP


Now GDP is using two package formats (rpm, ipk) and I suggest that we select only one package format for GDP because of build time.

I prefer to use rpm format. Do you have any opinion?
