According to this old document written by PrasanthK_06, Cypress use to have a git repo setup for the brcm80211 patchset:
However, that server looks to be now dead, has Cypress moved this somewhere else?
git clone --verbose --progress git://git-iot.aus.cypress.com/wiced/hnd/brcm/linux/brcm80211.git
Cloning into 'brcm80211'...
Looking up git-iot.aus.cypress.com ... fatal: unable to look up git-iot.aus.cypress.com (port 9418) (Name or service not known)
Currently we are using Chi-HsienL_21 2020-01-15 release Cypress Linux WiFi Driver Release (FMAC) [2020-01-15] , however i'm not really looking forward to again forward porting that 154 patch-set from my v4.19.x version to v5.4.x..
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just to clarify, The link ..(git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git). is an internal Cypress git repo.
And the link .git://git-iot.aus.cypress.com/wiced/hnd/brcm/linux/brcm80211.git. is the external repo with the changes upstreamed to it from Cypress from the last release.
I think you need to swap your internal/external words in that statement above. Linus would not give you that permission..
So as 'you' will say, the git repo git-iot.aus.cypress.com is only 'internal' to Cypress, can Cypress start mirroring that repo to your GitHub account. It would be immensely more useful then the 'semi-random' snapshots you currently do.
If you don't mirror that repo, what is Cypress's real plan? Currently you have 155 patches targeting v4.14.x, are these ever going to be submitted mainline, or just allowed to bitrot?
