  Did you examine what each of those contains?

https://github.com/RobertCNelson/ti-linux-kernel-dev

  Per the readme, that is just a bunch of scripts for building the
kernel, but the source is elsewhere...

https://github.com/RobertCNelson/bb-kernel

  Last updated in 2014 -- I'd consider that quite dead

https://github.com/beagleboard/linux

  Readme implies four kernel versions in both normal and RT variants, and
updated last week...

Recheck https://github.com/RobertCNelson/bb-kernel. If you change the branch you’ll find it was updated a couple of days ago.

In fact, that’s the one I point my students to (https://elinux.org/EBC_Exercise_08_Installing_Development_Tools_4.4) Once the desired branch is selected, it has scripts to load the correct cross compiler and the kernel and compile everything.

I prefer also https://github.com/RobertCNelson/bb-kernel
there is everything to compile easily and deploy the kernel.

But I would like to know the difference with

https://github.com/beagleboard/linux ?

which one is more up to date ?

which one is the best ?

  Okay -- so I normally don't use GIT, and never used branches in it...

  Maybe the readme for master could add some clause about "current
development is found under branches" <G>

Good idea. I’ve just put in a pull request with a more helpful README.md

I would like that someone tell us which source is more reliable, more
up to date for the beagleboneblack :
