That works for me. :-)

What I believe we need is a crisp and clear definition of the image that is
designed to run on production hardware. We need this because we need to
ensure that the production image meets GENIVI's license policy exactly.

What does it mean that the GDP is a development platform? Does that mean
then that I use the GDP to create an image that permits me to develop an
image? Or does the GDP process itself output that image? To me this is the
difference between an SDK and an image built to be put on production
hardware, i.e. a car. My understanding is that the GDP is a set of layers
that extend meta-ivi with additional functionality but the end goal is the
same: a production ready target image.
