The Intel-BMC/openbmc repo is where we (i.e., Intel) pushes our
internal fork externally while in the process of upstreaming. The intent
for this repo is for it to be functional on an Intel development platform
(e.g., Wolfpass) at all times while upstreaming changes to the
openbmc/openbmc repo. The long term goal is for Intel to be pushing all
development upstream to the openbmc/openbmc repo, and using the Intel-BMC
repository for sharing future capabilities that are not yet publically
announced. Where our goal is to push our internal development fork to the
Intel-BMC/openbmc repo every two weeks.
Two exceptions for upstreaming are the webui and linux kernel patches.
Upstreaming the linux kernel patches is challenging and some of the patches
may never make it upstream. With the migration of the webui to vue.js
there's not much point in upstreaming the Intel fork of phosphor-webui.
My answer to your question is to use the openbmc/openbmc repository, but
not for controlling your car brakes.
