Devicetree.org is a community effort by many companies and individuals to facilitate the future evolution of the Devicetree Standard. The devicetree is a data structure for describing hardware. Rather than hard coding every detail of a device into an operating system, many aspects of the hardware can be described in a data structure that is passed to the operating system at boot time.

Linaro has defined a Lead Project with its membership to address the needs of the Arm ecosystem. The Devicetree Evolution (DTE) project aims to: - collect and consolidate the different Devicetree requirements from the Linaro membership and the ecosystem. - update the different specifications (Devicetree, EBBR,...) as needed - work to ensure coherency between all software components using Devicetree

Groups and projects within Linaro will provide a set of reference platforms covering the Devicetree diversity we want to address with this project and will provide regression testing and maintenance.
