Very useful. Thank you. 

WRT to the Beaglebone Black (B3) I am currently using kernels/RFS built from
the RCN repositories (i.e. generally mainline but sometimes with early
patches). Snappy looks like it might be an well-resourced alternative so I'd
like to investigate it further. 

Questions arise around using TFTP/NFS for both booting and mounting the file
system. This works perfectly with the mainline 3.18 and 4.1 kernels and with
a Debian 8.x RFS. 

Do you have any thoughts on how well this might work with the current
And does the new Snappy u-boot configuration system accommodate TFTP boot

I am doing some kernel driver and user-land work and the SD card route just
does not cut it :)

Final issue: Is there a FAQ on how to get basic packages onto an ARM board?
I was thwarted in my last Snappy experiment by the absence of alsa-utils
