I’m trying to get some information on the Beaglebone Debian port versus the Debian armhf and armel ports. Can you help me answer the following questions?
Is a synopsis available of the differences between the Beaglebone Debian port and the mainline Debian ports for the same architecture?
Does Beaglebone Debian follow the Debian product lifecycle?
Will the same security bulletins, patches, and releases from https://security.debian.org be applicable to Beaglebone Debian? If so, does Beaglebone defer to the Debian package trees for actual package updates?
We’re currently working an embedded engineering project that utilizes the TI AM335x SoC architecture, and I’ve been having a bit of trouble understanding how the Beaglebone Black Debian lifecycle works. Any information you can provide would be a great help.
